Open letter to incubator-entrepreneurs
By Dave Winer on Saturday, May 21, 2011 at 11:13 AM.

Just had an idea. I know at TechStars/NYC the next crop is preparing proposals. This is a good time to try to influence you! :-) #

A picture named tryHarderSmall.gifI have a list of 11 ideas for new tech projects. Some of them, I believe, have a serious chance to make money. #

If you want to do one of the ideas on this list, or if one inspires you to an even better idea, I want to know about it -- before you submit your proposal. It's okay to contact me. I would like to help you put the plan together. (Assuming you have a serious chance of winning.) #

Once it's been through the incubator process, assuming you're successful, I'd like a chance to invest. #

I don't know why I didn't think of this sooner. :-) #

PS: It doesn't just apply to entrepreneurs with TechStars or even NYC.  #

PPS: Maybe we should call this early-stage-mentorship. Or entrepreneurial mentorship. Or lazy entrepreneurship. Or venture visions. Whatever it is, I have a roadmap, and if your work fits in, I want to participate. #
