Inflow Launches Venture Alliance Program Under Leadership of California General Manager; Tony Medrano, GM, Also Named Finalist for 2003 ``Entrepreneur of the Year'' Award.

Business Editors/High-Tech Writers


Tony Medrano, the newly hired general manager of leading IT outsourcing company Inflow, was named one of 15 finalists for Hispanic Business Magazine's 2003 "Entrepreneur of the Year (EOY)" Award.

Medrano was selected as a finalist from an international pool of more than 100 applicants just as Medrano was hired by Inflow to develop new business and launch its Venture Alliance Program (VAP).

Inflow's Venture Alliance Program (VAP) was designed by Venture Capitalists and CEOs to provide portfolio companies with higher quality and easier-to-use IT outsourcing services, including colocation, business continuance and other managed services. Inflow's customer service, simple billing procedures, flexible service offerings and guaranteed 100% Internet uptime are the ideal fit for CEOs and CIOs of growing companies looking for reliable outsourcing assistance. Inflow's VAP allows Venture Capitalists to leverage these attributes across their entire portfolio, resulting in saved time and money for their companies -- and a qualified IT partner to service their needs from one of 13 Internet data centers across the nation.

"We designed our VAP to enable top-tier venture capital firms to provide their portfolio companies added value by saving their portfolio company executives time and money," said Art Zeile, Inflow's chief executive officer. "We are excited to launch this program under general manager Tony Medrano's leadership. He has the experience necessary to give venture capitalists and CEOs the confidence that he understands their needs."

"Giving CIOs a high-quality single point of contact for all of their IT outsourcing, colocation and business continuance needs, along with the ability to design national strategies in any of Inflow's 13 data centers, is of tremendous value," said Trevor Chong, Principal, Enterprise Partners Venture Capital.

"I'm very honored to have been recognized for my entrepreneurial achievements and excited to be spearheading Inflow's business development in California and the Venture Alliance Program," said Tony Medrano, general manager for Inflow-San Diego. "As a fellow entrepreneur and former President of a 100-person VC-backed software company, I understand the issues facing today's technology executives. I have walked in their shoes, raised venture capital, built an operating company, launched software products and understand the strategic and financial benefits of outsourcing. My new role as general manager for Inflow has allowed me to better serve growing technology companies throughout California."

Said Doug Carlisle, managing director, Menlo Ventures: "Inflow has provided excellent services to Profitline, one of our most exciting portfolio companies, and we are excited about the opportunity to leverage their outstanding customer service across more of our portfolio."

Medrano is a Southern California native and holds a BA from Harvard, an MA from Columbia and an MBA and JD from Stanford University, where he has co-taught an MBA class on Entrepreneurship & Venture Capital the last four years. During his career, he has received such prestigious awards as "Top 30 Up-and-Coming Entrepreneurs" from Silicon Valley Magazine.
