I am an entrepreneur, investor and advisor to dozens of businesses. I help entrepreneurs avoid typical new business pitfalls while advising them on how to raise capital, narrow their focus and eventually make a lot of money. My specialty is geospatial technology (GeoTech, GIS, geographic information systems) as I founded a company in that space in 1988 and sold it in 2006, but I focus largely in the mobile, software, apps and IT space.
You have your priorities backward. You need an experienced business person with some tech knowledge. A smart person can learn what he or she needs to learn about your business fairly quickly. The chances of you getting hit by a bus are smaller than your need for business experience in the C-suite.
