Looking for like minded individual to explore a few business ideas
Hi there guys. I am Charlie, currently 26 years old, Comp Sci graduate from Imperial, currently holds a relatively senior position in what was a startup company (5m turnover now) where I have been working for the last 6 years. I’ve always wanted to start a business myself, infact one of the main reason I choose to work for a startup after graduating was to gain experience and better perspective of running the company as a whole. I am looking for someone who is either experienced in starting a company, who knows the potential pitfalls, or someone who is like minded and well motivated to share the risks and rewards. I’ve got a handful of ideas but I am also open to new suggestions. Money wise, I have just under 100k in shares and investment I’ve built up over the past few years, which should be enough to get everything started. I am not willing to abandon current job until the business has picked up momentum, but since I have no wife or children I would be dedicating evenings and weekends to it. In terms of my skills I am very good with all aspects of software/hardware development (Web/Mobile/Desktop) from design, implementation to testing and quality assurance either working solo, or manage teams up to 10 members. I am also proficient with my hands, able to carry out services and repairs on my car, DIY around house. I am also fluent in Chinese and Korean, with well established contacts in those countries. Due to the nature of my area of expertise, I am leaning towards a IT/Communications company, but I have considered housing development and trade brokering so I am not locked in any particular field. Thanks for taking your time to read this.
please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I have experience in setting up my own companies from scratch and I am extremely interested in your proposal for a business startup
I am about your age (bit older) and now working for Investment Bank in Credit Risk IT (previously Insurance, Legal, online recruitment/HR and other sectors)
I’ve build number of systems from very small projects to 10,000 CPU distributed computation engine.
I’ve got a bit of saving and would like to invest money & time wisely.
Please let me know on email@example.com what sort of ideas you have and hopefully we can meet to discuss.
Thanks a lot
Are you based in London?
I’m a Software Engineer too. As you, I always wanted to start a business and work on some of my own ideas; well, some time ago I decided to go for it and I am currently working just part time so I can spend as much time as possible working on my business. The first idea I’m developing is an online website, and it shouldn’t take too much long before I finish it. I was actually looking for an investor so I could hire someone to help me out (just one developer is quite hard) and fund some marketing campaings once the app is finished. So you would be an ideal candidate, someone who can give the final touches to the product with me, and can also invest some money.
My app is being develop with MySql,Spring,Tiles,Tomcat… the usual; and it should probably be finished before the end of the year.
If everything goes well, I was expecting to fund some other ideas with the income generated from this business.
Would you like to hear more about my business?
I am currently located in Winchester where I work, and would be happy to hear about your business, feel free to email me at aboutastone at gmaildotcom.
I have a lot of experience in Java sevlet, and have worked with techs that you speak of, I could provide you with quite a lot of assistance in both back and front end development outside of working hours should it be required.
No money needed from you for this.
I know you have ideas of your own but it sounds as though nothing is definite so
I am contacting you to see if you might be interested
We are just in the process of getting a few people together there are some on board already. We are looking still for management but am talking with someone on that and are looking for programming / web developing and a few other roles inc researchers. So thought you might be interested in the developing
I also have a team involved with another project who are all highly skilled with Global traction but they are involved with that and other things to do this as yet (though at a later stage will be offered on board) hence why I need a new team for this.
It is a new innovative seed stage, sort of niche – yet 129 million monthly English only language Google only search demands
Social network & one stop portal project
A same-niche-market but not the same concept site was bought out by CNET (large multi billion dollar American media company) for an undisclosed sum
This has very particular interest potential for at least 6 of the UK’s biggest companies and some American companies such as CNET.
See this link below to see how one pre revenue / launch model was supported by Tesco with a view to buy out but were discouraged from accepting Tesco’s offer due to other similar sites being worth billions.
crash pad were bought out by airbnb with only 7,000 users my point here is innovative ideas are readily supported and bought out.
As I say I have already got a few people willing to be on board as soon as they have known what it is.
I am trying to get a largish number of people all for equity so that it helps people find the time to spare )just a few hours a week – I only have a couple of hours per night and a bit at weekend as i am full time on my other venture) rather than burdening just two or three people with the pressure to put in a lot of time.
I reckon this could be launched by spring 2013 and at some point before expect interest such as mentioned earlier above
