Getting Started

It was in the midst of a fourteen-hour recording day when an iPhone blackout occurred that resulted in the loss of all Amos’ contacts and a stroke of brilliance.

The idea: Automatic backup of data on computers, phones, and mobile devices. With two engineers found on a craigslist ad, Amos began work on CyberSynchs.

Sixty million users later, Mr. Winbush’s New York based company has built a company with revenues approaching 9 figures. In fact, his brainchild CyberSynchs now has 15 employees that include millennials and baby boomers.

Mr. Winbush credit’s the success of CyberSynch to studying other companies, honing his leadership skills, and respecting the knowledge of team members. He says that these things, along with staying open to new possibilities, have made his company a success and his dreams a reality.

Making Waves

In 2010, Amos Winbush was recognized as Black Enterprise’s Innovator of the Year. 2010 was a special year for Mr. Winbush and CyberSynchs as he was also included in the 100 Brilliant Companies list by Entrepreneur Magazine.

Like many modern tech companies, CyberSynch is run in a free flowing, creative manner with a focus on social engagement.

Building a Legacy

Thanks to Mr. Winbush’s innovative mind and resilient spirit, data synchronization is now a modern problem solved.

A wildly successful company that began in a small studio apartment and grew to the mighty force it is today.
