I want to build a brand new entrepreneurial space for students with great facilities and exciting stuff. Very thought-provoking. What'd the easiest way to get people on board?
There will not be one silver bullet for this, but with a bit of leg work I can't imagine it will be too hard. Here are a few thoughts. Every Uni more or less will have a student led Entrepreneurship society, most of them have websites, they will all use Facebook and probably Twitter in some form. They also compete is national competitions like SIFE and FLUX. In addition most Uni’s will teach some form of Entrepreneurship as part of their employability agenda, so you have an opportunity there. There are organisations such as National Council for Graduate Entrepreneurship who you should approach.
That should get you started!
What is it you are trying to do exactly. If you are looking at creating some kind of web space, what skills do you have, or have at your disposal. If your not technically inclined and need to do it yourself. I would suggest something along the lines of word press. There are a lot of ad-ons etc. You can easily create your contacts list, run blogs, put up articles, down loadable content etc. I use Super-green hosting word-press is free and auto installs. There are others you will just need to look around. Open source is probably the way to go since you are likely to get access to material for free and there is a lot of help out there.
