Funding-Work-Revenue cross dependency

To get something created and sustainable you need money and customers, to get customers you need something created. To get something created you need worker. To get funding you need something you're going to create. It's such a vicious cycle that has no obvious opening. If people could get together to create a product, they could all profit in excess of a salary.


I am looking for arrangements that are mutually beneficial to workers and capital owners.

在我看來,十字架錯過了最關鍵的一點,那就是時間。爲每個項目創建基礎都需要時間,可悲的是,它是所有項目中最稀缺的資源。資助者將要求獲得 MVP(最小可行產品)的資助。除非您有時間創建 MVP,否則您從一開始就沒有機會。只有在 MVP 之後,才能開始循環。

In my opinion the cross missing the most critical point, which is time. Time is required to create a basis for every project and sadly it's the most scarce resource of all. Funders will ask for a MVP (minimum viable product) for funding. Unless you have time to create a MVP you will have no chance from the beginning. And only after MVP the cycle can start.

[thekhan], Well, that's exactly the problem that we want to solve: to enable people with an idea, that makes logical sense, to start working on it, and get funded for doing it from the moment when it:

  • (A) logically makes sense
  • (B) someone is willing to put their time and resources to it
