Startup Opportunity - Web Developer (Updated)
Aug 19, 2015
I am looking for a developer and/or co-founder for a website that enhances small business growth, community engagement and education on the local level. The goal is for the website to become a profitable business that benefits local economies and communities across the U.S. You can get an idea for what the startup is about by visiting the “landing page” at Edinia.com.
I am looking for someone who is passionate about the idea, offers their own creative bend, and who cares about making people's lives a little more interesting and meaningful.
The website would require the following capabilities, among others:
• Accounts / user profiles
• Allow members to list services that will be purchased
• Payment management
• Database management
• Email capabilities
* Although this website is very different in its niche, the developer must have the skills to create websites like TripAdvisor or Meetup, as it will have similar functionality and capabilities.
As with many startups, during the initial phase, development will be compensated with substantial company equity. External funding will be sought shortly, using a variety of methods, to help grow the company and create revenue streams to support competitive salaries.
A little bit about me:
I have the ability to bootstrap the business, contribute some initial personal funds when necessary, as well as to invest 40+ hours/week. I also have extensive experience within this niche/target market and a passion for its mission. I am currently working on the business plan, marketing plan, market research, and simple, elegant website designs to drive conversion. I have received positive feedback, a lot of interest, and some valuable input from potential consumers who are willing to be early adopters.
I believe my marketing plan can result in substantial use (a proven track record) with very limited monetary investment prior to receiving external funding. I am also building email lists and strong incentive programs to increase traffic and engagement.
