Erik Porter, has over 25 years of experience in sales and building entrepreneurial business ventures across the pharmaceutical, technology and agro ecology industries. Erik led the start-up and growth of three ventures that spanned a range of products and services involving sales, fundraising and client relationship management. Erik serves as a Business Intermediary at Business Acquisitions, Ltd. assisting businesses in transitioning ownership.

Prior to Business Acquisitions, Ltd., Erik served as Chairman, Board of Advisors for Waste Farmers where he provided leadership to the management team focusing on fundraising, marketing and sales for the company. Erik was a co-founder of Data393 (now called Latiysys). Data393 was a 5,000 square foot data center when it opened in 2003 and grew to an 18,000 square foot facility generating over $14 million in annual revenues and recognized as a leader in the space. Data393 provided collocation, managed servers, managed services, storage and bandwidth to some of Denver’s top companies. The company was financed through private investors and revenues and sold to a VC firm in 2007. Erik and his partner were able to provide a return on investment of 6x to investors. Before Data393, Erik founded Colorado Computer Rental. Colorado Computer Rental provided IT technology for short or long-term use in training, conventions, trade shows, short-term projects or long term projects. At the time, the computer rental market was saturated with competitors. When Erik sold the company through Business Acquisitions, Ltd. in August of 2001, Colorado Computer Rental had become the market leader in the state and had exclusive contracts with every hotel along the front range and up the I-70 Corridor to Aspen. Colorado Computer Rental was the only provider at that time to have an exclusive provider relationship with the Colorado Convention Center and provided technology to almost every convention/event in the state. Ten years later, Colorado Computer Rental is alive and well in Denver. Business Acquisitions, Ltd. was able to find the right buyer at the right price who has continued to grow the business. Earlier in his career, Erik was with Marion Laboratories in Southern New Jersey. It is through this experience that he gained expertise in sales and relationship management.
