I'm interested in creating free *.exe programs for windows 10 in Visual Studios with the option for users to donate if they desire. However I am not sure where to upload my programs or the best way to allow for users to donate, I was thinking bitcoin or paypal, maybe both?
Welcome to this week’s Operational Roundtable Thread.
Ask about anything related to legal, accounting, project management, or how to get started.
Don’t be shy. The purpose of this is to learn and share ideas and methodologies with one another.
Any question is a good question!
If you are answering questions, remember to be kind and supportive. Many are just starting out and have no idea what they are doing. That’s okay! We all knew nothing before we knew something.
You can also find more support using instant chat on the /r/startups discord.
This is a follow up to This Post.
I have an idea for a product. I feel like this product would be a great starting point to building a company that is a positive to society.My problem is I am definitely more engineer, less business person, organizer, team builder.This has resulted in me having difficulty finding a path to success.
Here is the concept of the idea. I posted it on another site, and received a small about of positive feedback (so far 3 up-votes no down-votes, but no comments after 600 views). I have a skeleton of a solution for everything though I am certain there are improvements that others can make.
So the concept is create a platform with tools to facilitate the creating of government policy documents, RFP, and other analogous bureaucratic functions.
Robust Tool-set for the creation of documents
Ability to link and incorporate external information
Tool(s) to analyse the engagement/disengagement of various demographics in the process
Designed to emphasize Cooperation, and re-engagement
Tool(s) to facilitate reaching out to under represented demographics
Tool(s) to facilitate promotion of the resultant output to appropriate government agents, and to the targeted culture
The current most common practice of public engagement in governance happens after these documents are created. If we can move public engagement to before these documents are created we can both prevent corruption through policy manipulation, but we can increase engagement of the governance process to be more inclusive. A more inclusive society will be capable of greater achievements and prosperity, less inclined to disengage from governance and the forces of capitalism that drive wealth toward a more equal opportunity of outcome.
I can see a few monetization opportunities for this application beyond standard Social Media advertising. But I think the real money is in the application that I have an idea for that leverages the tools built here to improve government, in a way that could revolutionize product development. In addition the core tools developed for this can be leveraged heavily for other purposes.
I feel like the best way to do this is open source but I have no experience in starting an opensource project.
What I am really looking for right now is someone to partner up with me that has the business side down, has some experience or at least a belief in themselves that they can and a desire to try to recruit the right teams, and negotiate the deals to keep the project moving forward.
I am highly motivated and willing to learn and follow the lead of this person where we decide on a path forward.
So my ultimate question for you here right now is… How do I find that person? Or an alternate solution to a traditional startup path.

Can you guys suggest how I can best move my product forward?
