I'm selected as one of the startups that will be participating in the 3 month program of 'Startupbootcamp Mobile' which is in Copenhagen.
I'm looking for a co-founder who can design basic appearance of GUIs(buttons, knobs, sliders..) and create a website.
I'm basically a music application developer and planning to develop and launch an item that is related to music.
I'm currently looking for a co-founder who would work with me and join the 3 month program in Copenhagen.
It will be a great opportunity to get funded and start the business in Europe.
If you are interested, feel free to ask me anything.
To put it simply, this idea gives visitors the chance to create their dream event (party and etc.) so simply, and make it come true, with the help of the public.
It is a fully web based idea that needs to be fully responsive with the latest web technology (HTML5 and etc.). As soon as the website is running, 100% of income will be generated from the site alone.
Using readily available IaaS/SaaS offerings... I am building a turnkey business platform for current or aspiring web designers
The platform consists of training items, sales/marketing resources, and business administration tools/apps served up via a centralized web portal.
The most interesting area is the potential to act as a business startup catalyst/enabler by targeting folks with an interest in technology or marketing who have yet to decide where or how to apply these skills and acting (students, career transitions, etc.).
Income models can include subscriptions or hosted services resale.
I want to start a social enterprise. It would be a media company based in East London, offering event management, video production, graphic/web design, online marketing and printing services to clients in London.
Whilst we do this, we work with young unemployed adults in Barking and Dagenham, Newham and Tower Hamlets, offering workshops and seminars. These people will also work with our project managers on projects we work on for clients. They will gain skills and experience that they can develop through our workshops and build a CV. We will then help them apply for relevant roles and prepare them for interview and hopefully they will get a full time job at the end of it all. We will travel to schools/colleges and universities in the boroughs, to talk about what we do and to get an interest from young people.
This has the potential to be very successful. Unemployment in those boroughs is worse than any other boroughs in London. In terms of making money, the need for all these services is constant as new businesses startup everyday and even established businesses need advice/assistance with the likes of branding, events and marketing.
I am keen to work with someone who has a keen interest in social enterprise and preferably experience in the services being offered. I have started to write up a business plan and need this to be developed even further so that we can work out how much funding will be needed and come up with ways in which to fund this initivative.
Telemedicine is exploding since it became approved my medicare and it is a multibillion dollar market that has mostly been untapped for mental health treatment - this is primarily due to insurance company requirments and other subtleties that other businesses have missed. Simply connecting patients with therapists is not enough to break the common barriers to treatment.
With over 200 million people in the United States each year who need mental health treatment but do not receive it due to confidentiality, cost and difficuty of access; this startup could pave the way in a new billion dollar industry.
I have the expertiese necessary to make this happen and I understand why other businesses have failed at this. Growing up on the internet and having many years of practice running an outpatient mental health clinic, I know what it takes to launch into the general public.
I am looking for a web design and web marketing firm to help - I have the tools and the knowledge but not the skills to get it on the internet and that is where you come in. I need someone with excellent design skills and knowledge to make this online community accepting and beautiful while being sure to market it in a way that the general population will be receptive.
I have the program and tools already written - contact me and lets get started.
I originally wrote this post on Founder2be with the intention of putting together a team to build the DreamsLinked website. I still am. I have recuited a couple amazing people since I wrote this, and they follow me like a crew follows their captain. I couldn't ask for anything more. My search is not over. I need developers. I need someone skilled enough to build the backend of a mobile app that uses GPS technology to help people discover networks and events around them.
I have front end people ready to get down to business, I need to find backend/API skilled individuals to tie it all together. Message me if interested.

DreamsLinked is a web project I created to bring the Silicon Valley experience to the web, and create a phenomenon that will affect the world. Entrepreneurship isn’t a job, it’s a lifestyle, an opportunity. Why is it that everyone isn’t an entrepreneur? Only a few have immediate access to these resources. My goal is to make entrepreneurship mainstream; To create a community where people build and support ideas. Where anyone with an idea can network with like-minded individuals to make it happen.
My first step is project Gamenetech, a social discovery tool that helps people discover events and networks around them, and has cool features to keep users engaged, and linked together! I seek developers to create the front/backend aspect of this app. I already found a some front end people, but the backend is most important. So I am seeking out back end developers here and now. Help me build this disruptive app, and let's make some noise together!
Back to the story!
Why Silicon Valley? For us, we looked at Silicon Valley as the place where dreams come true. We believed that in Silicon Valley even if you feel like your idea is smaller than a grain of salt, people will take your idea seriously. You have access to different resources and you can build whatever you set your mind to. Silicon Valley was that place we wish we could go to, but sadly, it’s inaccessible to us, and many people around the world. We decided to build a website where people can share ideas, and collaborate with others to make them a part of reality. A place where you are accepted for your ideas, no matter how small they may feel to you, and you can step into the world with your chest pumped out, ready to face all the criticism the world will throw at you. It wasn’t available to us, and sadly it still isn’t. If it was, we wouldn’t be here searching for something to give us that edge to make the impossible happen right?
So what is DreamsLinked? What am I recuiting people to do? DreamsLinked is an online neetworking/social media site, so it embodies all of the features that come with these types of site (online chat/networking, etc.). The core focus of the website is to allow individuals to connect with like-minded individuals, to build and share ideas, and inspire each other, and be inspired by fellow members of the community. You come to the site for a reason: to experience entrepreneurship, learn more about it, learn about the community and founder, be exposed to the many resources provided and curated to you, and you begin discussing ideas in a more accepting environment, similar to how you come to this site to network and push your ideas, or the ideas of others forward.
I created this company for the very same reason I am writing this today: no one is willing to support this idea, and those who do, are unable to help build and push the idea forward, but they will join the community I seek to build, and are waiting for me to build it.
So what I seek is the Dream Team. It is a team of awesome people who want to build awesome products/technology together. Chemistry is everything, so I seek fun and down to earth individuals as well! ? Ever seen the movie Inception (if you haven’t do it now, or wait and we can see it as a group)? In the movie they pull together a team of individuals with the goal to accomplish the impossible, and their goal is to help the leader do the impossible (some have ulterior motives, but they form a strong bond with one another). That’s who we are, and that’s what we want you to be: a valued member with the goal to achieve something bigger than yourself. So expect to join up with a fun group of individuals who want to change the world!
I am looking for a flexible partnership with individuals who are interested in helping me push my ideas further, so that I can help them push their ideas further. The issue I have is that I literally bootstrapped this company and idea to this point, so I am unable to pay anyone who joins or partners up, but I can guarantee that this is an adventure worth traversing, and idea worth investing time (or money, not as important) into, and even though I cannot now, I will compensate (monetary or otherwise) in the near future, with things such as equity, or employment.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story. Whether or not you decide to join our community is strictly your choice. You never know what will happen unless you try right? I hope to hear back from you with feedback or a yes, but most importantly, I would like to get the opportunity to learn a little more about you.
Till then, best regards.

The company focuses on the rapidly development of CADD drugs for cancer and infectious disease. This type of drug have been gaining prominence as a prophylaxis or treatment for both tumor and infectious diseases due to its low human toxicity and high effectiveness in boosting the human immune system to act against those pathologies. The firm is design to be a virtual biotechnology company with a small core footprint that will be nimble in creating a repertoire of patentable drug candidates for licensing and for contact research.
Invest Africa's mission is to provide expansion capital to small and medium enterprises based in Africa by connecting them with individuals all across the world in order to help them grow their businesses and create sustainable economic growth in their communities. Invest Africa aims to cater to the "missing middle" of finance and serve organizations caught in the gap between microfinance and traditional banking. With traditional banks serving the higher end of the market and microfinance institutions (MFIs) serving the poorest of the poor, there is a gap in the global financial services industry where entrepreneurs and their small enterprises have little or no access to capital.
Invest Africa aims to offer guarantees to banks and microfinance institutions providing loans to SMEs thus limiting their risks. By sharing the risk with them, Invest Africa will facilitate lending to this market and provide better conditions with lower interest rates. Invest Africa will raise these funds via a crowd funding platform accessible to global investors. Invest Africa's part of the financing will be in the form of loans that the local entrepreneurs will repay with interest. The remuneration will be based on a profit-sharing model since the interest rates will be distributed between the online investors and Invest Africa. Invest Africa will also fund student loans with the same model.
In addition, Invest Africa will offer business support services (coaching, training and mentoring services) in partnerships with local organizations, business colleges and community centers.
We are looking for a Portfolio Director with banking and/or microfinance experience: the Portfolio Director is in charge of building and managing a portfolio of local partners that are offering SME loan products and/or student's loan products. The Portfolio Director is responsible for selecting new partners, including financial due diligence, negotiating contracts and managing product development from start to finish. In addition to managing our portfolio, the Portfolio Director contributes to defining and executing on Invest Africa's overall strategy to expand SME and students loan markets.
