I've been trying to get involved, get my name out there, and network with fellow local entrepreneurs in my area. I am a 22 year old developer/designer, student and entrepreneur at heart.
From what I've found so far:
People who work in industry - They say: " 'sure' I want to create a business $X and here is the idea. I kinda-sorta have time after work to work on a startup, but not much at all on weekends. "
Students (at my current University) - They say: "oh yeah, I want to have my own business $x" and here's the idea......". They then are so focused on getting an A+ rather than a B+ (and instead striving to create a business from the ground up).
People on Meetup Sites - They usually have an idea of some sorts, so I go to meet them locally for a meal or coffee. They usually already have an established team of founders, or atleast one founder (who usually isn't the person I am meeting) and seem to just want to look for someone to help code $x application, without any say on the idea.
It seems students and people in industry (or individuals with families or other obligations) seem to want (or able) to do the LEAST amount of work. You would think it would be the opposite for like-minded individuals still in school.
I will continue to keep networking locally, but it seems to people I have found just aren't what I'm looking for. Is there something I should be doing that I'm not? Who should I try to stay away from?
