At SXSW I got to stop by the ACL Live Moody Theater for the huge Startup America Partnership event and chat with some of the countries most amazing innovators, business-owners and entrepreneurs. I started the evening talking to an amazing, young entrepreneur and SXSW newbie, Amos Winbush III (@techceo), founder and CEO of CyberSynchs, a tech company that synchronizes content between electronic devices, car, and computer systems. I am completely fascinated by Amos – he has the outlook and soul of someone twice his age and experience and showcases a “do more” attitude. Amos believes that anything is possible if you’re willing to let go of your fear and believe in the possibility of creating the life you imagine. Case in proof – look at this list of accolades he already has under his belt:
“30 under 30 America’s Top Young Entrepreneurs”- Inc. Magazine
“100 Most Brilliant Companies”- Entrepreneur Magazine
“Innovator of The Year” – Black Enterprise Magazine
“30 Most Influential CEO’s Under 30” – Under30CEO.com
“40 Under 40 Achievers” – The Network Journal
“2011 Game Changer” – The New York Enterprise Report Magazine
I asked Amos what one of the most innovative use of technologies he’s seen with his company and Amos told me he launched Cybersynchs in 2008…solely from his mobile phone! Since launching, they’ve grown to 15 employees, 153 million customers, and they’re currently moving into a partnership with China Mobile (the largest telecommunications company in the world).
