Hey it's Matt, how are you. Sure looking nice out there isn't it?
What I tend to think of myself as is a shoe string expert, since I'm not familiar or never worked with Venture capitalists. All I've heard is that the only ship that doesn't float is a partnership. So venture capital makes me nervous unless it was like facebook money where you could retire regardless of the outcome. I think it would be sad if you just got enough to keep things going, you do all the work, the VC's push you out like the often do.
So to shoe string things what you do is use sites like:
fiverr.com - They do every job for 5 bucks
Scriptlance.com - They do every job for 10 bucks +
mturk.com - They do micro jobs for as little as 10 cents each
craigslist.com - Post ads in Manila phillipines to fine any kind of techies, web designers, remote support, virtual assistants for dirt cheap. They'll work for about 3 dollars an hour as subcontractors but to them that's a very high wage in there country.
Anyway that's a starting point for anyone. Alternative to that there are a lot of VC's out there that have endless dollars to play with that people can turn to when it comes to launching. Tons of sites and forums matching VC's and entrepreneurs. Don't have to get on the DD. ha ha ;-0
The next Edmonton Entrepreneur Meetup is in April. RSVP below. Thank you.
