Networking with SXSW Sponsor, TechCrunch Disrupt Attendee and “Conference Donkey”: Capital One

Interest in UCMS

Daniel shared your email with me this morning regarding your interest in partnering.  You and I met a few times before, most recently at TechCrunch Disrupt, where we discussed the Duck9/UCMS opportunity.  I’m not sure why you believed reaching out to Daniel would lead you to anyone other than me, as I mentioned I run the student business and gave you my contact information.
To close the loop – I’m not interested in moving forward with a Duck9/UCMS engagement of any sort.  Capital One is extremely selective in choosing vendors and only does business with companies that have the highest ethical standards.  Based on our interactions, and after conducting due diligence, I can see that Duck9 clearly falls short of the mark.
I have added you, Duck9 and UCMS to Capital One’s ‘Do Not Use’ vendor list within Procurement.  I have also BCC’d my extended team on this email.
Best of luck with your endeavors.

I came across the UCMS website the other day and I was interested in the concept of sponsoring on-campus credit education through Capital One. My role at Capital One encompasses our student credit card business, and as we look for new ways to expand our business while simultaneously helping customers build a solid credit history, UCMS could prove to be an interesting partner.
Are there any UCMS representatives in the DC metro area that would be interested in setting up a meeting to understand more about your business model and how this works?
Thank you,

Daniel Mouadeb
