Can I get 20 million funding for an online baby food portal site. There are millions upon millions of babies out there and if ibabyfood.com can get 0.1% of them buying 10$ of food a year from the site we'll make 100 million in the first year!!!!
Additionally, we can sell advertising to baby product makers and provide rich deep content which will create "sticky" eyeballs for the parents who will build a deep relationship with the site. And, we can have a community of parents and children online.
As the children grow we'll know their ages and in 20+ years be able to market financial products to them based on their life events such as college funds, buying a house etc.
As for an exit, we can IPO for 40 billion within 4 years
neuronwave is the personal site of Ben Hosken. I am the founder of Flink Labs, a data visualisation studio based in Melbourne. Previously I founded AgentArts, where I developed a recommendations system that we ultimately sold to MSFT.I have two patents, one in Recommendation Systems and one for a datamining algorithm I invented. I have a strong interest in physical computing, emergence, self organising systems, immersive games, bluetooth ad hoc networks and other fun things.
A while ago I built and ran Blog Change Bot - an AOL IM Bot which notified you when blogs you like are updated. I also built IcyPole, a bluetooth based P2P mobile phone app in 2004. With Suzette, I've built Playground Finder - a community contributed site for parents to find playgrounds nearby and while traveling for their kids to play in. Its a "playground" for my social, location, community and mobile interests.
I live in Melbourne with my wife Suzette, son Oskar Tex and my little girl Jasmine
