Millionaire idea #824 - Kickstarter authenticated fabricator
You've seen them before... first project created and they nail a great idea. The project blows past its funding goal and an ill-equipped middle-aged man who just wanted to make a better mousetrap finds that he's the mouse. His delivery estimates are wildly optimistic; he can't handle the work load... he's a tinkerer with a phone number and $10 left on his Skype account trying to call every Foxconn-wannabe in China begging them to take the Kickstarter money and end the nightmare and make his dream come true.
Here's where you come in. You work as the middle man, like the old-school eBay power sellers that take a vig for fronting another man's trash. You're an expert fabricator with connections to all the ins and outs of overseas widget making, shipping, and customs. You make a name for yourself as someone who can get it done right and on-time, the first time, every time.
Now, Joe Schmoe comes up with the idea, you launch his kickstarter for him for a healthy rake of the income and the rights to the product's future development.
And BAM! You just turned those 3d-printed prototype videos into sweet injection molded money trees.
