Ideablob

January 12, 2008

I recently posted my idea for huyuno on ideablob.com.

“ideablob.com is where entrepreneurs and small business owners can share and grow their business ideas – and have a chance to win $10,000 towards fulfilling them.”

“Great ideas are generated every day by people all across the country, and now these ideas have a place to live and grow. Eligible individuals can submit their business idea to ideablob.com, and based on votes from the ideablob.com online community – which includes other innovators as well as friends, family, colleagues, associates, teachers and mentors – one idea every month will win $10,000.”

My Idea:

Idea description: Most everyone knows and is active on Linkedin.com, but we at huyuno believe that there must be a better way to present oneself and one’s portfolio of work. The typical resume format is not very dynamic. huyuno would allow members to upload documents, videos, screenshots of web work, and even music to their profiles. Not everyone works in finance…there are creative types out there with creative experience that demands a more dynamic way of presenting itself. When networking and especially looking for a job it’s all about Who You Know. Let people get to know the Real You…with huyuno!

What I’ll do if I win the $10,000 prize?

I’ve made a number of connections while working at two other social networking startups. I will use $2,400 to $3,000 on the initial web build and final logo design. I already own the domain! An additional $2,500 (approx.) will be spent on an in-house web designer. Up to $2,000 will be spent on an outsourced web app. for use on facebook with which we hope to leverage to increase membership and activity. If any money is left over…hopefully a contest of sorts for our new members!
