Richard Barkley is a big traveller, and has been all around the world. The first business he started doing was doing non profit work in Uganda. He is a family man. Adopted several children from China, so he’s been there. A few times. In total, he has 6 kids – 3 biological and 3 adopted.
He graduated with a finance degree, then taught himself how to code. After having a few engineering jobs, he then started his own businesses. He is a lifelong learner and reads a ton… currently reading former President Obama’s latest book. But in fact, he reads all types of books – biographies, tech books, economics… even books about extraterrestrials.
After working for Dell, he grew tired of not moving the needle much, no matter how hard he worked. So he started a company called Nuvola Networks, innovating around e-learning. While doing this, he noticed how manual the flow of information was between antiquated systems for larger companies and enterprises. He thought – why don’t we automate this?
