An economy is like an engine. Nothing that just comes and goes in unpredictable cycles. If the economy is “high” it basically means it fires on all cylinders. If it is low, it runs at low speed, maybe spotty, maybe some get even stuck. Obviously their are many moving part in such an economy engine but one thing is for certain – it needs energy – ongoingly because even an economy is no self propelling wonder thing.
What can we learn from the energy industry?
Renewable energy is the ultimate key to success. If an economy is built on raw material that comes out of the dirt, well, that economy has a very defined life cycle. Like energy, also an economy need to have a resource that is renewable!!! If it is built based on the fact that a country is simply hot to catch-up with others, it makes a lot of sense, till the day it is there. If an economy is built based on ridiculously low credits, well it will break one point, or based on the fact that a country prints millions of dollars per day… Like anything that needs energy, also an economy needs a renewable resource.
We do need a renewable energy to fuel an economy day in and day out. The best renewable energy we have today are – believe it or not – start-ups. Start-ups create new products and services, which in turn creates possibly all new markets. Start-ups work by breaking all rules, not caring about a past, not worried about structures and all the cumbersome aspects of a large global behemoth. As a result: Start-ups are the ultimate innovators. Over a million start-ups exist around the planet and innovate – every single one of them. Start-ups are the key to an economically healthy nation. May more start-ups propel our economy.
What Society3 can do for start-ups
Start-ups need money and there is actually plentiful available from VCs, Angels and industrial investors. Start-ups need a place to work from and ideally have a seeding ground where they can tap into many adjacent resources; Incubators are a great place to get that service.
Once the first prototype is developed, very quickly start-ups need to get their great innovation to as many users as possible. No matter what they developed, medical devices, new types of batteries, software, hardware, new pharmaceuticals or just new ways to do other things, most start-ups lack of the marketing power, the budgets and even the ideas how to bring those new things to the market. More importantly they need to develop trust so that those who are naturally skeptic begin to consider what the start-ups created.
S3-Buzz can help them, get the word out, at a near zero budget and actually develop trust through their friends and advocates. As a company we decided to support start-ups from around the world as much as we can. We provide our technology at the lowest possible price and even develop additional services to help them grow. We believe helping start-ups grow is as important for the economy as finding renewable energy for the industry.
We put together a Startup Buzz Program and make it available immediately. It may have some kings we need to fix but we believe we better get going now.
