MorVid Interactive, LLC – The Greatest Company that Never Was

When in the face of doubt David Nelson has always said, “Yeah, let’s do it!” Something so simple has become very pivotal in his life. This simple statement led to David co-authoring the first book on 3D Game Development for mobile devices, landing Diageo’s Captain Morgan brand as his first client in a new digital agency and building the Morganizer, a mobile app that Captain ‘Morganized’ the user’s pictures and posted them to social media. Before the iPhone was released he had to develop a series of apps for 90 different phones that worked in 12 countries. David and his business partner Carlos were a team of 2 that won the account of one of the biggest brand conglomerates in the world, DIAGEO. He had it made! He started from nothing and started working with a major brand and their marketing agency, AKQA. And this was all completed while he was 23 and still in college.
However, MorVid quickly became the greatest company that never was. David learned valuable lessons on building a business and the realization that marketing makes or breaks a company. And while one success can lead to others, often times there are many other factors that can challenge your success. In the end, David had to learn how to fail, fail fast, and find the fun in chasing success. This led him down the path of joining a medical IT startup, returning to starting another successful digital development agency, and finally focusing on the BrewFund, his latest venture. Learning from his past, he’s applying a new focus towards marketing his new business and it’s paying off in very rapid growth. Along the way David also learned the power of community and how it impacts successful entrepreneurial regions. David has also been leading the charge on forming Startup Tri-Cities, a network of entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs in the region in the hopes of making Northeast Tennessee a powerhouse of entrepreneurial activity.

BrewFund – Give the Gift of Beer!

The BrewFund is a mobile app and website that allows anyone to give the gift of a beer to their friends and family. Simple select a friend, choose a brewery nearby (or near your friend), and you can buy them a pint, flight, or even a growler and a t-shirt. Your friend receives a text message saying, “You’ve got beer!” and they walk-in to a brewery and receive their free beer!
The BrewFund is available on the iOS and Android app stores as well as at BrewFund.com. We have partnered with breweries in NE Tennessee, Nashville, Asheville, Indianapolis, and Charleston, SC. In the last 6 months the BrewFund launched and has grown to over 700 users with continued growth each week.
