This week an interview with a RIM industry start-up.
Bill Bleil is the President of Delaware Valley Archives. Delaware Valley Archives serves the Philadelphia market and is based in Willow Grove, PA.
This is a great story of early persistence, small victories and even some defeats. If you are a grizzled veteran, this is a great interview to remind you of getting started. If you are a industry newbie, this story will let you know that it still works to start in the RIM services game.
Enjoy the show.
