Fab Five of Start Ups
May 14, 2012 § Leave a comment
For sometime I have wanted to start a little company that has at its core creativity. I envision this group being the Fab Five and what gets generated by this little company saves people time, money, allows people to get creative themselves, and generally improves the quality of life of thousands if not millions of people.
This group should bring different skill sets to the table and I believe that those need to be the following:
Technical – write programming
Graphical – put the vision(s) into easy to understand and attractive images.
Legal – ins and outs of copyright, establishing companies, etc.
Marketing – how to craft the vision(s) into messages that will appeal to the target market(s)
Leadership – focusses the group on the task(s) at hand and is capable of fulfilling the vision(s)
Financial/Accounting – insure that we are doing things profitably.
Notice that there is 6 skill sets but only 5 people. I know there is overlap and is by design as everyone should have an appreciation of the expertise of the experts.
What I want from each member of this group is a passion in the doing of their thing and passion for getting up in the morning and creating the day. I want someone that is passionate about accounting, that loves the doing of accounting. Same goes for programming, graphics, marketing and legal.
Each member will put in $1000 and this will establish the company of which the founders will own 75% of the company equally held by all members. This means that each founding member owns 15% of the company.
If you are out there and this sounds like the kind of thing that might just interest you, then let’s start talking.
