  • I need some business partners.

    I want to open up a local store in a pretty big college town. Lot's of bars and food places, but nothing for the techy kids like me.

    I want to open up a PC shop that is actually open past 6 PM and not Best Buy 30 mins away where the people don't know shit. (That's the competition).

    I want to carry all the parts you would need to build a PC with good options the like you don't find at Best Buy and less bloated price gouging.

    Besides that I also will carry special intrest and import hard to find magazines that I have only ever found at Barnes & Noble in downtown Pittsburgh. Like the U.K. editions of Maxim, Photoshop and Illustrator, etc.

    I will have software and games, but only PC. The console market is tapped around here.

    We will also carry books, but not best sellers. Things like musicians books, art, and technology.

    If the space is large enough I'd also like to do a little internet cafe because I have never even seen one of those in person so the market is untapped. We could possibly do LAN tourney's monthly.

    I want to call it Tenstones Comp/Lit



    So who wants to help invest some serious start up money. I will do all the leg work I just need the financial backing.

    Yes, I am serious.

    What we are is the sum of a thousand lies
    What we know is almost nothing at all
    But we are what we are 'til the day we die
    Or 'til we don't have the strength to go on

    Re: I need some business partners.

    That's a really good idea, something like that opened downtown here and it's always got some pale kids who don't know what a boob is in it. Seriously though you could do some good business. I'd invest but I'm opening my own drive through porn movie store in the next couple of years. I want to call it Horn and Porn, you honk and the attendant gives you a random movie.

            If you can hold out for 5 years Bob, I could do all the financial/marketing aspects of the business. I mean, that is what I am going to school for.

                            I can tell you that here is not the place to recruit investors for a business. Do some research in your area. It's going to be tough to bring in investors if you don't have any capital of your own, but it's possible if you can sell them your ideas and business plans successfully. It's a lot more than, "Give me money to do this." If calculated returns on their investments are not promising or not met, they'll pull the plug. Banks won't even touch most ideas as their business plan and outlooks are inconsisten or just flat out ridiculous and not thought through.

                              I don't know, I think he could get a loan if he can prove there's enough support for his idea. Bob should take a survey of a "random sampling" consisting of nerds, geeks, and bribeable immigrants to show the demand is there.


                              Speaking from experience, waving your penis at the loan officer is a sure way to get your probation extended.

                                              try going to one of those BBB workshops. there are usually independent buisness owners there that either have some capital or know someone with some capital. also the BBB will give you some good information on how to prepare your buisness plan, taxes, securing financing and investments etc.
                                              anyway it can't hurt and no lender or investor will take you seriously unless you have a sound buisness plan with a 5 year plan.

                                                It wasnt working at the time, and I wasn't trying to edit your post, just write underneath it like I'm doing here.

Haven't worked in six months, and this house I just bought took up the last of my reserve cash. Sounds like a sound idea, and I have seen strong success in such ventures. I wish one would open up around here, tired of waiting a week for parts to arrive. Anyway, good luck with the business.
