My post is not really a question but more of a person search or perhaps a public announcement.
I am developing a startup, currently in the brainstorming stage and I am in need of a partner who is a web development master, or at least master in training. My idea is to build a web portal/networking site for people in the entertainment industry (actors, writers, makeup artists, directors, agents, editors, set designers, photographer, models, etc). There is currently no website that let’s entertainment professionals network and connect in an environment designed for that purpose. Of course the entertainment profession is desperately in need of such a site because of the project based nature of that industry and the need to always meet new people. The initial target user will be persons in the industry followed by anyone who has an interest in the industry, which, if current TV trends are an indication, is everyone!
This is a high risk high reward venture. As someone who has worked on Wall Street for the past seven years I laugh in the face of risk. I am joking of course, but I do want to make this site work. I have some web startup experience but that was 10 years ago while I was still in college.
I am looking for a friendly, positive, and web savvy person who wants to build the next big thing and be a partner in the business. PHP experience would be great. Living in the NYC area is a huge plus. Everything else is icing on the cake. If you are interested please email me at email@example.com and tell me a little about yourself. All emails will be kept confidential.
Thank you for reading.
