Marty Koenig's curator insight, April 13, 2013 8:46 AM

Sharp perspective on entrepreneurship from a 19 year old. If all entrepreneurs had this fresh yet oddly wise view, more startups would have some success.


When the initial focus is on creating the absolutely best user experience possible, and not letting monitization get in the way or simplicity and ease of use, you have a winner.


The problem is, most angel investors (at least the seasoned ones) will not be able to look past NOT having a business model/financial projections. The enlightened few will get it. LIke the enlightened few entrepreneurs will get matched up with them.


I expect this approach to take years to take hold. I suppose twitter and facebook started this way.

This could be a trend for the future something I would have consider when I was 19 for sure.

This would be a great candidate for a crowdfunding campaign. Not Kickstarter, but perhaps Indiegogo or rocketHub.

is this good or bad you'll need to answer for yourself

Gary Goel's curator insight, April 12, 2013 8:53 AM

I still have to Roll with Android unless Apple made a deal with ADOBE yet? Anyone know? I love the smooth interface and camera but I still see blank spots where there is " FLASH" from Adobe. Meaning as a person in Business I don't get full Web. But if anyone knows an app or can update me on that I would buy the ever fashionable IPHONE. But Google is Google and Google has the Open Source Lanquage that give the power of the world to download and create. Apple remains Proprietary and you have to buy their apps or a limited to their apps right? Or do they let people download and build what they  want?

Keep waiting. I said a year ago when JOBS Act passed, that a year would be asking for a iracle. Expect this to drag on at the SEC for years, and in the end we'll have a watered down equity crowdfunding capability. I'm sticking with reward-based and donation-based crowdfunding campaigns for you. Yes, the potential to rais greater sums is in the equity market, but short of spending $10,000 - $20,000 on lawyers and accountants to put together a REG D or SCOR filing, or slogging to NYC or Silicon Valley to get in front of angel investors, crowdfunding in the US in it's current form is here to stay.

 

There will be consolidation, as niche CFP's (CrowdFunding Platforms) pull together operational efficiencies over the next five years.
