Ideas Farm. July 5-19th 2015.
The start up school with the world for a mentor.
Ideas Farm is Start Up School that seeks to use the power of the crowd to help young entrepreneurs to launch. To do so within 14 days. Everything will be filmed. Everything will be online. Warts and all.
It will take place on an old farm in West Wales. On the edge, of Wales. And on the edge of a new way of helping businesses launch.
Companies that want to change the world can be helped by the world.
How? What? Where? And Why?
10 start ups that want to change the world.
14 Days. 14 Nights.
You start off by pitching your tent.
And end up by pitching your company.
You will have pigs and chickens to feed.
As well a business to launch.
You will have mentors from around the world.
And mentors around the campfire.
Every day filmed and uploaded to the web.
Your problems shared overnight with the world.
And by morning, the world will have a few answers.
The crowd wants you to win.
Because you are going to make this world a better place.
The Ideas Farm. Let the world help your start-up.
Let the world help.
This event will be filmed throughout.
It will have its own You Tube Channel.
We will build websites.
We will build companies.
We will challenge business models.
And we will make change happen.
We will follow the ebb and flow of their 14 days. And 14 nights.
We will get them ready to launch.
It will make for great drama. And, we hope, great companies that change things.
The crowd can build world changing companies.
