Funding-Work-Revenue cross dependency

To get something created and sustainable you need money and customers, to get customers you need something created. To get something created you need worker. To get funding you need something you're going to create. It's such a vicious cycle that has no obvious opening. If people could get together to create a product, they could all profit in excess of a salary.

I am looking for arrangements that are mutually beneficial to workers and capital owners.

[thekhan], Well, that's exactly the problem that we want to solve: to enable people with an idea, that makes logical sense, to start working on it, and get funded for doing it from the moment when it:

  • (A) logically makes sense
  • (B) someone is willing to put their time and resources to it

In my opinion the cross missing the most critical point, which is time. Time is required to create a basis for every project and sadly it's the most scarce resource of all. Funders will ask for a MVP (minimum viable product) for funding. Unless you have time to create a MVP you will have no chance from the beginning. And only after MVP the cycle can start.

thekhan,

Gitlab is archiving dormant GitLab projects. and freshmeat.net was a site I did use for finding new open source projects. Unfortunately they stopped updating the site. And we're replaced by freshcode.club

The problem is universal. For someone to keep doing something for someone else, there needs to be some return. The free lunch doesn't last forever.
