As founder of video sharing site Mydeo, Cary Marsh is determined that her digital baby will find commercial success. Michael Nutley reports on the journey so far
Cary Marsh isn't a typical digital entrepreneur. She's not a coder, she doesn't have an MBA and she's never worked for a consultancy. Mydeo, the video-sharing service she launched in March 2005, is one of a rare breed: a home-grown Web 2.0 business that owes its success to timing and some government funding.
It's also set to become more successful, partly because of its partnerships with Microsoft and the US Best Buy electronics chain, and partly because of the online video boom.
