My husband tells me (often) that I "start in the middle," and expect people to understand what I`m saying. Therefore, here I am, asking for your help.
Goals/Mission: to put people`s (submitted) ideas with other`s talents, resources and tools in order to create/manufacture those submitted ideas. The resulting products (anything from a greeting card to a small carbon footprint home) then go to market, via the website and any other means. A portion of the profits of these products go into a venture capital fund. Everyone involved in the process, simply by being involved, becomes a member of the "Innovate Earth Society." As a group, we brainstorm, vote, decide on how the VC funding gets distributed.
Why?: Because two heads are better than one. Because businesses could do more business by collaborating with others. Because these strange economic times should bring out new ways of creating products. Because "ordinary people" want to be extraordinary; collaboration can help.
Website details: designed by myself, graphics included. I like bold graphics, pretty, artistic, yet easily understood (help!).
How do I get people to understand and excited about the concept?
Once I`ve got that down, I`ll tackle getting the word out (social networking, web pr, etc.)
Thank you all, so very much!
