“My newest venture is Gusher. Having started many companies I kept running into the same issue over and over…the best ideas and entrepreneurs were not getting funded and their ideas never saw the light of day. These entrepreneurs weren’t getting funded for the most idiotic of reasons…they were not in the right city, or they didn’t have the right connections, or they didn’t attend the right school, they didn’t “look” a certain way, they were too old, they were too young, they were the wrong gender or race, they didn’t have the right experience, the right team, or or or or or…you name it and they were rejected because of it. But rarely was the true reason they were rejected because of their idea.
So I set out to change this. I believe great ideas can come from anyone anywhere. And I believe the market and not venture capitalists should be the judge of whether or not these ideas see the light of day.
So we created Gusher. Without the need for investors. Without the need for capital. How? Gusher helps Entrepreneurs create and launch startups using performance-based equity. Everything from technology, media, and health to design, finance, and gaming.
If you have a great idea and need the expertise of others to help bring it to life, Gusher can help. Go to the Gusher site and get started. We’re coming out of beta shortly and are now accepting new startups.”
