I have been talking about a creative project for quite some time now. You can read my posts here and here. I even shared thoughts about Rockethub as a platform to launch your very own creative project.
Here I mentioned the contest they were having entitled, “Be Almost Famous.”
Well, early this morning I posted my project on their site. Much to my surprise it made the cut. Here is the pitch… Many people are without jobs or are underemployed. There is an urgency for creative workforce solutions.
I want to host an event that solves the problem of getting funding for early stage projects that empowers people to work in unique ways. I want to bring two members of the Rockethub team to my city for a 1 day, intense and empowering session. Specifically, this will be a start up event Jacksonville, FL.
Topics will include the idea stage and fundraising. My focus is on helping those that do business in Jacksonville. That’s why it’s called NowJax!
The purpose of NowJax is to inform, engage, and motivate inspiring start ups. Additionally, to spark a movement in our city of creativity and job creation. Who else better to share other than the team that has built a platform to do just that?
I’ve searched throughout the blogosphere in our city. To date- there is nothing else like it in our community. The expertise from Arielle will help me take my efforts to a new level of exposure and impact for those that need assistance getting off the ground.
Help me launch the project in early 2012. Like this project now!!
Yep, I’m launching into the deep to do something I’ve never done before, to have something I’ve never had before.
