As a team of designers, developers and digital marketers, they have gotten frustrated seeing the best ideas for websites and mobile apps not turned into reality. Normal investors won't take the risk of investing at the idea stage because they want to see a working website or app and a bunch of people using it!
Since the average person with an idea doesn't have the $50k plus it takes to build and market their startup idea, the chances of their dreams coming true are minuscule!
When asked how they will solve these problems, here is what Serious Startups had to say:
"SO....Instead of getting founders with great ideas to pay us. We want to be part of the team and turn their great idea into reality as equity partners INSTEAD of for money! Founders meet with us about their idea. We consult with them professionally and help figure out the best way to do it. If we really like the idea, it gets designed, developed and launched for equity instead of money. It's much easier to get investors AFTER you have a working prototype instead of just an idea!
We're tackling several great startup ideas and getting ready to launch. We're also have several more great ideas getting ready to be developed! All the money from this campaign goes into building and launching many ideas over the next year. All the skills are in place, we just need additional funding to take them to the next level!"
This is where the money goes:
$50,000 will go to marketing of the 4 startups we have already taken on and launched
$25,000 will help cover cost for developing out startups next year
$25,000 will go to marketing startups we take on next year.
