Micro Outsourcing

leave a comment »

Don’t know how to call this model. It’s a little bit of co-development, a little bit of OEM. It’s a micro out-sourcing, a proxy worker, and so on…

Basic idea is to tap capital, talents and ideas from individuals, and the venture simply provides infrastructure, know-hows and sometimes capital, to make things happen collectively. Depending on the nature of the business and/or how responsibility is split, the profits would be split accordingly.

Some examples:

Some possibilities:

  • Freelancers total service (tax, insurance, legal, virtual office, virtual receptionists, etc…)
  • Design, sourcing, manufacturing ?
  • Charity
  • Community Restaurant (Community Garden Model?) : everything supplied, just your idea and cooking skill

Some catch lines:

  • “Put your mom’ secret receipt and your cooking skill to work!”
  • “Give me $5000 and an idea, and I will put your idea on the Apptore”
