Byron Brown and David F. KennedyThe New York TimesTechnology connections are essential to any new technology company, says Byron Brown, a partner at law firm Covington & Housel who focuses on mergers and acquisitions.
The key is to have a clear idea of what technology you are after.
“What are the things that you want to leverage, and what are the markets that you are looking to tap into?” he says.
“It doesn’t matter how many people you have, how big your company is, or how well your product works.

The company that Brown and his colleagues refer to as “the new king of software” is Lyte.
Its first-ever IPO, in October, raised $9 billion in venture capital, raising $8.6 billion in private equity funds and raising a record $5 billion from venture capitalists.
Lyte is a mobile payments system that can be used by brands, retailers, and other companies to offer services.
But its business is a little more complicated than a typical digital commerce company.
Its platform is mobile, so it is able to leverage existing businesses.
“The reason why Lyte is so different is that it can’t use a traditional payment platform,” says Brown.
“So instead, it’s really about what the company does with the money it makes from users.”
The Lyte platform is very flexible.
The Lyte team is working on a new version of the platform that will make it even more mobile-centric, which makes it more valuable and more flexible.
“Lyte’s platform is not only flexible, but it’s also not a traditional digital commerce platform.
For instance, it offers a wide range of services to consumers.
The company says it’s adding over 3,000 new products and services every month, and its app is currently used by more than 5 million people.
Lyndex is a new platform that is designed to be used on the Web.
The platform is open to developers, meaning they can integrate their app into the Lyte app, which can then be used anywhere.
Lystix doesn’t even have a product plan yet, and we are not even sure what the core Lystix functionality will be,” says Gavaskis. “
Lystx doesn’t have any products yet, but we’re planning to add more products to the platform in the coming months,” says Jon Gavankis, Lystex’s chief product officer.
“Lystix doesn’t even have a product plan yet, and we are not even sure what the core Lystix functionality will be,” says Gavaskis.
“There are some elements we want to do in the next few months, but there are some things we want users to be able to do.
That’s the real challenge.”
Lystaxes core functionality, however (like allowing users to book rides and purchase food, for instance) is still in the very early stages.
“We’re focused on building out the product in the future, but at this point, we’re not sure what that product will look like,” says Lystax’s Gavackis.
“I think a lot of what we’re building right now is about making it easier for consumers to get around, so that they can be more productive and have a better experience with Lystx,” adds Brown.
“A lot of the stuff that is new in Lystyx is really going to benefit consumers,” adds Gavakis.
It’s about making the app easier for users to use and easier for businesses to integrate.
“In order to be successful, you have to be a consumer-first company,” says Ben S. Siegel, Lyestix’s CEO.
“You have to make it easy for consumers and businesses to be connected.”
