A while back my good friend Josh Baer asked me if I’d like to be involved in Capital Factory, a really interesting project to help stimulate innovation in the tech space. The idea is pretty simple – entrepenuers submit their ideas to us, and we choose 10 of them. They get a $20k investment in cash (on very reasonable terms), $20k in free stuff (legal advice, stuff like that), and most importantly, the support and advice of 20 successful and well known mentors, typically people who have gained a lot of experience building companies. Check out the list, they are an impressive bunch (I’m almost certainly the least qualified among them, and I’ve been around the block a few times! ;).
Applications are due on April 3rd, so if you are interested don’t waste any time. Take a good look at CapitalFactory.com, and if you think its for you – apply!
