Prior to SaaSMAX, Dina was CEO and founder of Critical Digital Data Solutions, Inc., a company that develops cloud-based online data storage solutions. Dina is a graduate of the Wharton School of Business, University of Pennsylvania, where she earned a B.S. of Economics degree in Finance. She was also recently named to Nine Lives Media’s Talkin’ Cloud 200 list, and as one of SMB Nation’s SMB 150 Channel Influencers.
As someone who has been leading and/or consulting to cloud-based, SaaS, and other technology companies throughout most of her career, Dina is set to take SaaSMAX from its Beta stage to commercial launch in 2012. The basis of the business model will continue as one that will give Solution Providers the ability to utilize online tools that are designed to help them find and compare SaaS and Cloud offerings that are most relevant to their end user customers.
SaaSMAX was created out of Dina’s own experience as owner of a SaaS app company, which she sold before establishing SaaSMAX. As a SaaS App Vendor, Dina saw first-hand how expensive, time-consuming and labor-intensive it was for SaaS App Vendors and ISVs to develop their own reseller program and build a channel. Therefore, she decided to develop SaaSMAX, with the goal in mind of automating channel development services.
