When I was at Babson I used to run a event called IdeaStorm. This was an
opportunity to take an idea, do a quick 5 minute pitch. Then get feedback
on your pitch/idea for 10 minutes and network with people who might be
interested in working with you on it. We used to have some great sessions
where we were able to expand and improve on what the entrepreneur was
thinking about as well as point them to similar services, etc.
I was wondering what kind of interest there would be with an event like
this Maybe a monthly session somewhere, or even online via a hangout or
something. Anything to get the creative juices going and get a better idea
of what people are thinking about.
I\'d suggest a site + app for anyone to pitch+revise+get feedback - ala
YouTube, but focused. Not only do users improve over time, but they
maintain a sharable (au/video) of their final cut. Plus you don\'t need a
ton of concurrent users in order to achieve escape velocity.
Long before SpaceX, I\'ve dreamed of being in "Star-Trek - The First
Generation" which is basically a (real) show, shot and produced about
the process of launching autonomous asteroid-capture space-ships and
eventually manned missions. It\'s an "impossibly huge task" so similar to
Elon, I figured I\'d build a successful startup first. LOL, right?
Well, now I\'m stuck in the middle of that dilemma - especially after
some advice that I\'m currently trying to solve a problem that\'s too
small. I\'m pretty sure I\'m not crazy, but am I nuts?
