I am looking for some valuable suggestions for my Idea. Its a product very useful for an ordinary/common man and even business people. In my research, I found out that it is not out there and to support the usefulness of it, I have called, PayPal, Chase Bank and even AMEX to see if my idea holds any value. I am throwing big names here to show that I am serious about my idea and asked them few questions to make sure my product will work if implemented properly.
- I often get many great ideas and all of them are unique.
- I am a software guy with over 12 years of industry experience. I have worked in the very functional area of the business myself where this product can be very useful.
- I wanted something more than a website this time so it is very different but quite catchy idea.
- I dont think of a Pokers web site or a common game, or gambling or some off-shore real estate investment ideas. Not that these ideas aren;t great but I think of very unique things unlike a common man.
- I make good amount of money in my work as a software engg.
- I have done enough research on my idea. Even spoke with one very successful businessman who owns few Mil dollar business himself. He is working on his business. In our discussion, he gave me few points to work on to. Being a technical guy, I have looked into those which are more business type of problems. In my research, I came up with very promising results after speaking with PayPal, Chase Bank etc. Technical side of it can be solved by some technical guy. There are thousands of techies all over the world. It doesnt need lot of research on the product, just a knowlegeable team can work it out easily.
- I have very little but valuable experience myself of unsuccessful start- up> We failed because of Time-to-Market factor. This time I want to go aggressively on my idea.
- I am very bad businessman myself. I dont think like businessman obviously because I am not one.
