Here’s a great hour long panel discussion moderated by Guy Kawasaki (garage.com) talking to successful start-ups about how they started, how they made millions, how they survived, what not to do, where they came from, fun times, etc.

    Hi

    That startup stories is really interesting. The company behind http://www.websitemade4u.com is very keen on developing innovative web based companies.

    If your idea is chosen by them they will develop a strategy to develop it into a MILLION DOLLAR business.

    I am waiting on my idea being accepted. Has anyone else sent them an email?

    adam,
    I’m not sure if your a programmer, but if you have an awesome web idea, I’d stay away from funders as they would just want a huge hunk of the equity. Do it yourself, hire a programmer and spend 1-2k for an intial draft. As you have seen/heard, from the video above, doiing it by yourself especially for a web app is the way to go because it’s cheap….it’s not like an idea for a physical product which actually cost undreds/millions just to put into the hands of consumers….a web app can be done free if not for very cheap.
