It’s harder to come up with a course of action that I can undertake on my own that possibly, somehow could make a difference. Im a big believer that entrepreneurs will lead us out of this mess. If you execute better than others, you could possibly make money at it. Once I have done the standard agreement, I will post it here for all to see. Maybe it leads to great things, maybe it leads to nothing. Im not going to claim a minimum or maximum amount or total I will invest.
The Facebook Platform is an umbrella term used to describe the set of services, tools, and products provided by the social networking service Facebook for third-party developers to create their own applications and services that access data in Facebook.
The platform offers a set of programming interfaces and tools which enable developers to integrate with the open "social graph" of personal relations and other things like songs, places, and Facebook pages.
You must post your business plan here on my blog where I expect other people can and will comment on it. If its a good idea and worth funding, we want it replicated elsewhere. I make no promises that if your business is profitable, that I will invest more money. If you do get money, it goes into a bank that I specify, and I have the ability to watch the funds flow and the opportunity to require that I cosign any outflows. In your business plan , make sure to specify how much equity I will receive or how I will get a return on my money. No mult-level marketing programs (added 2/10/09 1pm) Im sure I will come up with more rules as I see what comes along, if anything.
I will invest money in businesses presented here on this blog. Thats the only way to get and stay profitable in such a short period of time. If nothing comes along that I think is viable, thats the way it goes.
