Former Trustify Employees Available For Hire

Hello, DCTech here's an opportunity to help some needy fellow DC Techsters during this holiday season. According to multiple, recently-ex Trustify Employees. Monday, November 26, 20018, in a loud and aggressive screaming match, Danny Boice fired 8, Trustify Employees. These Trustify Employees were guilty of going to the Labor Relations Board seeking back pay. Danny was so aggressive that the Trustify Employees called the police. Trustify Employees that I've talked to have not seen Jen Mellon in the office for months, with one exception. Two weeks ago, she breezed into the office and printed a few things out. According to multiple witnesses, she and Danny had a loud argument and she left. This is a terrible time to be out of work and looking for a job. These are employees who were originally inspired by the stated mission of the company and while, I am not able to render an opinion on their competence or work ethic, I was impressed with them in the short time we spoke. Danny Boice's company appears to be crumbling and I'm told that the few employees who remain are also competent and only stayed because they can't afford to be out of work. If you're looking for marketing, sales, and tech folks,...

Things That Make DC’s Mr. Cranky Cranky

I'm not quite sure if it's become evident but lately, Mr. Cranky is kind of acting just a smidge Cranky. What the hell is sticking in my craw besides having something stuck in something like a craw of which I have no idea what the hell it is until looking craw up in the dictionary right now and finding out that it is a noun describing either the crop of a bird or insect or the stomach of an animal and yet the term stick in my craw means stick in my throat. So instead of just venting by seeing how many words, I can pack into one sentence let me just proceed with the list. LinkedFrigginIn - Everyday I get four or more people who I don't know requesting to connect with me on LinkedIn. By some weird coincidence, most of these schmucks come up with the exact same invite message, "I'd like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn."  What are the odds? What this message tells me is that these folks don't know, don't care if they impress me and don't care that I ignore them. Hey, if you want to connect, write me a message explaining to me...

And Still They Persist – Buffoon Danny Boice and Trustify

Here's a crock of shit from a dip shit. Danny Boice and Jen Mellon of Trustify have been missing payroll, hemorrhaging employees and cash. Their office is always empty. The couple is on the verge of Divorce. Their Cheif of Staff and CFO have been canned. Another Attorney in a long line of Attornies just fired and withdrew from representing them and Danny has been absent from 2 recent court hearings. Another company in which Danny has worked is in trouble with investors (see just one of many investor law suites) and law enforcement (See what the Commonwealth of Virginia Found). Danny was a founder of Communiclique and Convicted fraudster Andy Powers is Danny's Yoda. Yet unrelented these clowns are reportingt that they are hiring a new Cheif Revenue Officer from industry giant Kroll (located in New York so they are probably opening the office for their new sale exec). This is a company of liars and proof of this is they read my posts, they threatened to sue if I didn't take them down and yet they do not sue. Danny Boice is a liar and that was not so, I would not be allowed to continue to expose Danny Boice and...

Joanne Boice’s Case Against Danny Boice, Trustify

People ask me what Danny's beef with his ex-wife has to do with the alleged fraud at Trustify. Here's the thing. Danny has started a lawsuit against his wife but dropped it when he was ordered to comply with his ex-wife's request for discovery. That discovery request asked for financial information on Danny Boice, Trustify and other information. Danny dropped the case, in my opinion in order to keep his financially cooked-books under wraps. His ex-wife, however, countersued and the court ordered that Danny produce the financials. Danny defied the court and still didn't comply. What is Danny Boice hiding? Why has he gone from suing his ex-wife for full custody of his children to putting himself in jeopardy of losing any custody of his children? For those of you interested in what's happening with Danny Boice, Trustify. Months ago, he sued his ex-wife Joanne for full custody of their children. I believe Danny is using the cash from his investors to harass his ex-wife. It wasn't bad enough that he cheated on her with her best friend. Abandoned her. Left her destitute by lying about his financial condition in order to pay a bare minimum of child support. He wanted...

World of #DCTech Update

Hi, #DCTech Mr. Sunshine here with a World of #DCTech Update. If you've been reading DCInno then you probably have no idea what's happening in the startup community in this town so it's time for a #DCTech update on what's really happening. Social Tables - The big news is a sweet exit for Social Tables. Congratulations Dan Berger on an exceptional job. The deal should certainly be labeled a win returning 7X to most investors. This investor is very happy. I'm sure the VCs are pleased and yet not ecstatic because the deal falls short of the 10X plus target of most investors. Yet as a #DCTech Update, this is a big win and a cash deal at that! This is a glass fully full as far as I'm concerned. Trackmaven - The Trackmaven "merger" on the other hand...

The Washington Post Non-Washington Business Coverage

The Washington Post has been asleep at the wheel in terms of covering the Startup world of DC. Granted, the startup world of DC has been comatose for some time. But while there are criminals and thieves plying their craft in DC, The Washington Post, is mum. But on October 12, 2018, the Washington Post's, Antonia Noori Farzan, woke up and penned an article about a minor crook in the Washington Suburbs of Fall River, Massachusetts. A DC suburb if 353 miles and a 5 1/2 hour drive is a commute. Yes, the paper which barely covers what is happening in business in DC didn't miss an opportunity to cover the curious inconsequential case of the 23-year-old Mayor-Elect of Falls River. The article: Elected mayor at 23 in struggling Fall River, Mass., Jasiel F. Correia II had the makings of a rising star — until Thursday (see link) As the post reports, "early Thursday morning, federal agents arrested Correia on charges that he stole almost a quarter of a million dollars from seven people who had invested in his start-up." Yet when local DC-based startup Comunniclique founder Andy Powers was found guilty of bilking local investors out of over $10 million dollars (which by my...
