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.
