Concept in Search of an Entrepreneur

posted Feb 4, 2011, 4:42 PM by Jessica Bloomgarden

Would you be an entrepreneur, if only you could find the right idea?  An older, serial entrepreneur has a great idea in the social networking space -- and is looking for a younger, aspiring entrepreneur who can work with him to drive the project forward.  For more detail, see below.  If you're interested, send a brief note about what motivates you to keith@tuckergreeninc.com.

The concept has been developed by Keith Green, who led one of New York's most revered Advertising Agencies until 1993, when he left to start a product development company, Tucker/Green, Inc.

Within two years he inked development deals with GE and Time Warner. Both concepts were in information-technology (1990's version). The GE product sold $300 Million year one and provided a royalty stream for Tucker/Green which supported early development of a Patient Education joint venture with Time Warner, with Green established as CEO. Within 24 months, three rounds of financing raised $40 Million including a $20 million investment by Lazard Freres.  

Today, Green is semi-retired but continues to develop broad-brush concepts and place them appropriately. The idea currently on the table is going to be the seed of a start-up. He is searching for an entrepreneurial person, in search of a great idea. Someone who could start contributing immediately, but become full time after graduation. 

The person who seizes this opportunity and proves themselves a leader will not only emerge as CEO, but will be able to build a team around them to complement their capabilities and interests.

The person for this position is smart, self-starting, hard working, intuitive, creative, strong and kind. A good communicator who enjoys being challenged, and relishes debate. Understanding the Social Networking space is a mandatory.

Presuming that the idea will lead to a real company, with real people, and real offices, it will preferably be based in Manhattan, but that is not a requirement. The right person will be able to make that decision when the time comes.
