[FPSPACE] Questions about Mir/MirCorp
Mon, 25 Sep 2000 17:01:58 -0700
Well, after some 8 months of effort, it looks like MirCorp has only
generated 2 paying customers. What is left unsaid is how many potential
customers MirCorp is talking to at this moment. I would not be surprised to
see MirCorp picking several more customers over the next 8 months.
Like any start-up, MirCorp is having the usual problems of raising money
and finding customers. Having generated over $40 million in sales, and
having an ample base of investors, MirCorp seems to have a better chance
than most in making a go of it over the next few years (although success is
not yet assured).
Besides, there may be some very interesting potential customers out
there........ all I can say is that there are possibilities that no one
here has considered yet.
