COLD Founders

No day shall erase you from the memory of time.


Carlos Ramey 

 From 13 to 29 years of age, I have actual verifiable sales experience. I have formal political experience with early life connections to Bob Miller the former governor of Nevada and the first female and former Mayor of Las Vegas Jan Laverty Jones. 
I have worked for large organizations ranging from The largest American ISP to a Dutch Global Leader in professional information services that has existed since 1836 .

Successfully sold into huge accounts from Anadarko Petroleum Corporation , Automatic Data Processing, Hospital Corporation of America, the Chickasaw Nation, Universities, American cities, large Tech Firms. I experienced success in selling technology into the LatAm markets, Europe and Asia.

I have international work collaboration experience, dealing with different cultural attitudes to work( had a client stand me up because it was a nice beach day......on a 2 million dollar deal.......with my  CEO with me.). 
I am now onto my second career using a skill set that I've personally built since my childhood.

I am a lifelong student of computation and its application to society and human life. Combine it with my financial/ business acumen  concerning project management, business development, marketing, and cold hard sales( cold calls....talking to strangers to convince them I can add value) and that is the background with which I approach business goals.

Using technology to enhance business processes, to create a competitive advantage sounds full of corporate IT jargon, but really simple things like setting up fax to email system and showing a business how to use it or setting up a VPN so that employees have the ability to telecommute increasing employee retention and availability to service clients of the organization regardless of weather conditions. Or showing employees how to sign business documents electronically. There is a digital divide in the world of commerce just as in society.

Getting society and businesses to better utilize and integrate technology will be profound and is the future of the current revolution in human society. Cold Republic will be a trusted and leading advisor in this regard. Its not about the tech, its about how its applied for the benefit of human beings.

I have always been inspired by the space between where I am and where I can be. That has been my driving force which has taken me from boarding houses to board rooms. My skills were built in publishing books, marketing music and writing press releases for major and mid major record labels. Supporting executives, sales personnel, and managers to improve internal operations for start ups and  venture funding. Born and raised in the United States my goals align with what will benefit my country. Developing start ups from concept to execution. Time is precious, it is the most valuable possession we have. How we use it determines our experiences and results the rear view mirror is always clearer than the windshield. But those who smile at trouble, gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. Whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their purpose unto death.
