Recently I was at Startup 2012…
Startup 2012 is NYC’s premier business plan competition and entrepreneurship conference. It covers all the crucial topics in entrepreneurship, and one winner goes home with $75,000 worth of cash, goods, and services at day’s end.
I was there with Jay Abraham, he’s been working with some of the biggest start-ups in the world.
My interest, other than hanging out with my good buddy and mentor, was that I’ve been studying this space for a little over a year now.
I’ve been watching the top venture capitalists, reading dozens of books about tech start ups, and analyzing the marketing behind rapidly successful start-ups.
What I found will change Internet marketing forever
When I launched BGS years ago I created 26 millionaires that now dominate their industries.
What I’ve discovered this year though, I think, is even bigger!
At this event Jay and I realized that what we were working on separately, and what was happening at the event, had an incredible amount of synergy. We’ll be working closely together.
We think this could revolutionize the start-up world and greatly increase a start-ups chance at success.
This includes YOU.
My Facebook fan page exploded with buzz
I couldn’t contain my excitement, so I offered a half an hour of my time on the phone to anyone on my Facebook fan page who could guess what we were up to.
Over 150 comments flooded our Facebook thread with people buzzing about what we could be announcing.
No one hit the nail on the head but two came close.
Since I was in such a good mood, I chose to pick both of them as winners.
Here are their answers…
“Your own version of private equity or venture capital firm that leverage on existing successful business and both of your marketing and business expertise.” ~ Jeff Chen
“You’re working on a groundbreaking new program combining the core principles of Maven/Preeminence, Lean Startup, Testing, Rapid Learning Acceleration to educate entrepreneurs in the new tech led, global world…or something like that!” ~ Chris Janzen
Congratulations to the both of you!
You should have been contacted by my team already, if not send us an email.
Now, like I said, neither of them hit the nail on the head. However, they were very close. I can’t reveal the specifics just yet but Jay and I are confident that this will be the biggest announcement of 2012 when it hits.
If you’d like to be one of the very first contacted when we’re ready, even before it goes out to our email lists, then just leave a comment with your thoughts on Jeff and Chris’s guesses. I’ll have someone on my team contact you through the email address you use in our comment field when we’re ready.
To Higher Profits & beyond,
P.S. My traffic guy is emphatic about getting this blog up and running again. He’s got a post planned for later this week about the Panda and Penguin SEO situation. He’ll tell you what’s dead now and what’s the best way forward. So watch out for that.
