To all my fellow entrepreneurs and start-up investors in Nashville. I’m sure you can all appreciate the incredible hard work, dedication, and tremendous sacrifice it takes to launch any new business or “start-up”. While it’s true, technology and the internet have made it easier and more affordable than ever to launch a new business today, in most cases though (as I’m sure ALL of you can attest), it will still usually take a lot of investment capital to scale that business and reach the milestones needed to have a successful outcome and provide shareholders and investors with a profitable return. | However, we all know it takes more than just money to build a successful business. It takes a team of talented and dedicated people committed to doing whatever it takes to make that business a success. In fact, in my opinion, selecting the right ‘team” is probably the most important thing you can do to ensure your long term success and avoid future problems…or worse – total failure! | As a start up founder myself, I regrettably have learned that lesson the hard way. Unfortunately, I chose the wrong partnerand it cost me years of hard work and cost my investors over $500k. That is why I decided to write this expose’ in the hopes that it will help prevent others from suffering a similar fate. I want to try and make sure no one else is duped or misled by this professional con artist and fraudster that now appears to be preying on the Nashville start up community. | The person I’m referring to is Mr. Steve Repetti (www.linkedin.com/in/steverepetti) of Crunchfire Ventures, Crunchfire Technologies, (www.crunchfire.com) and Radweb Tech (www.radwebtech.com). | As you will see from all his various websites, Steve Repetti appears to have a very impressive background and represents himself to be an “accredited” angel investor, software programmer, speaker, author, and all around start-up expert. He proudly promotes his affiliation with other reputable venture capital firms like the New World Angels and The Miami Innovation Fund. He regularly attends and speaks at many different start-up events & conferences, including sponsoring one of the recent well publicized “Start-Up Bus Tour” events in Nashville. He also has numerous YouTube videos featuring him speaking at different events espousing his philosophy, credentials, experience, and his so called expertise? | As you can imagine, given his impressive credentials and online reputation, my original thought was we just hit the proverbial jackpot..right? WRONG!! Herein lies the problem and again, why I chose to write this? | Like most good con artists, Steve Repetti is a MASTER at “talking the talk”! However, I can tell you from first-hand experience that Steve Repetti is not who he represents himself to be. Although he may be competent at writing code, building a website, or spewing the latest “buzz words” to a group of investors or wannabe entrepreneurs, he doesn’t have a clue about how to run a company, how to treat people with respect, and he is really nothing more than a total bullshit artist and pathological liar! In fact, my experience working with Steve Repetti was so highly dysfunctional, unprofessional, and contentious that it’s actually hard to articulate into words that which would fully convey the tremendous waste of time, money, and disrespect myself, my employees, and all of my investors had to endure by choosing to work with Mr. Steve Repetti! Now, you’re probably asking yourself, why would I say all that?
