what really is mobileTAO? We are a movement, more than a community We advocate Social Technopreneurship, and use mobile technologies All members to become Founders/Co-Founders of Tech companies, or Social Technopreneurs. (Begin with the end in mind) We engage member-partners as Founders/Co-founders mobileTAO will remain a non-profit movement Tech start-ups will be separate entities; mobileTAO as an org will not get any share from them.
