While this is an individual award, being recognized by Bisnow would not have been possible without having had phenomenal mentors and great teams that helped build my companies.
Dulles, VA (PRWEB) October 08, 2013
Intelishift, a fast growing provider of colocation services in Ashburn, VA and Silicon Valley, today announced that Bisnow has honored President and co-founder, Ryan Barbera, as one of this year’s Top 30 under 40 awardees. Barbera, a parallel entrepreneur, also founded and leads Unleashed Technologies, a web and hosting solutions company located in Columbia, MD.
“I'm honored. I'm surprised. And, I'm a little embarrassed,” says Barbera. “My business philosophy is centered around building teams of great people. While this is an individual award, being recognized by Bisnow would not have been possible without having had phenomenal mentors and great teams that helped build my companies.”
“The hardest thing about being an entrepreneur? It’s a 100 times harder than you think it is and will take much longer than you think it will,” concludes Barbera, “But I love it.”
Bisnow is a new media company that focuses on producing local business-focused ePublications and events. The company launched Top 30 under 40 in 2011. At the time, Bisnow acknowledged that although the economy had lost momentum, entrepreneurship in DC was starting to boom. Bisnow wanted to recognize the new generation of leaders driving the movement. As a parallel entrepreneur, Barbera fits that mold.
“Having parallel entrepreneurial ventures makes a lot of sense in our tech sector,” observes Barbera. “They leverage each other and created mutual benefit that increased their value in the market. Technology enables parallel, or sister companies, to succeed in many fields by keeping focus narrow and streamlining costs and operations so they’re optimal. I actually think the way we’re conducting business will become more common in the future.”

Headquartered in Ashburn, VA, aka Fiber Alley, the company also operates in the best data centers located in Northern California and the Midwest. The company was founded in 2011.
