Jatin Patro - Visionary, Social Entrepreneur, and Small Business Advocate


I'm a seasoned technologist with over 24 years of experience leading uncharted IT and e-commerce initiatives at Intel and FedEx, currently committed to improving the short-term and long-term survival and growth prospects for online businesses through the deployment of SharedMall - the next generation website and e-commerce platform, where technology/time/cost are no longer hurdles to online growth for small businesses, and where
Search Engine Optimization Overhead (SEO)
is no longer a burden. "Optimization" is meant to result in efficiency... not the overhead dictated by Google and propagated by webmasters! It's not just SEO, though, technology and trends across the board are continuing to move in a direction that diminishes the relevance of small businesses and communities in the online competitive landscape.

I'm challenging the status quo on online technology and trends through my #1 Amazon bestselling book - Escaping SEO and Amazon - that sheds light on the real-world online challenges and offers immediate hope and long-term relief to businesses, through a prescription for online success, and the foundation for a future that favors small businesses online.

Among other things, I volunteered as an Executive Committee and Board Member at SCORE (PDX chapter); I volunteer as a Business Counselor and Workshop Instructor at non-profits such as SCORE and public libraries; I'm the Global Sales & Marketing Director at CatanDog's Global; and I'm also the Technology and Marketing Partner at various businesses..
