MPS (Media Promo Solutions) is a small internet
startup company based in Winnipeg,
Canada. The company was founded by two people, Bill
Todd & Angela Todd in 2007.
Bill, with a degree in Electrical Engineering, and Angela,
with extensive experience in marketing and promotion, had been in business
previously in the radio technology industry. To facilitate the day-to-day operations of
their business, Bill created a database called “Nebula” to
keep track of customer accounts and planning.
Essentially a CRM and PIM software solution, written in VBA using
Microsoft Access97, the two ran Bill’s database application on several
computers they kept up & running 24/7.
After 2 years, Nebula had grown to run their entire personal
lives & business. In fact,
Bill & Angela found Nebula so useful, that they decided to market
and sell Nebula as their primary business.
Nebula was renamed to “Organize”, and re-architected
from the ground-up for a different platform, enabling it to be a self-contained
application, and able to be installed from a single file.
Organize version 1.0 launched April 03, 2008. A 2-month period of small scale testing began
in November 2007. MPS is looking for angel investors and venture capitalists
for additional funding. Product
development, delivery to potential customers via the web, and customer
care has already been established and put in place with seed capital. However, additional funding is needed to create
the awareness required to reach the extremely large potential customer
base (approx 500 million) by way of outsourcing the product promotion
to a large US-based PR firm and other additional firms in other global
