Truth Party Capital Meeting 2/9

Hello. This is Sander Hicks. As you may know, I am slightly notorious for founding disruptive, punk rock corporations. I have been laying low in the last couple years, but I'm just about ready to found my next venture. It's part rebellion against the post-modern paradigm, part spiritual revolution, part financial social network, part alternative business school. I have written two posts about what I have in mind.

Using cashflow from my current venture, Zen Carpentry, I plan on founding this corporation, Truth Party Capital Inc. in the upcoming months.

I want to reach out to like-minded entrepreneurial spiritual warriors, coders, tech people, etc. Let's all become the next Steve Jobs, together. As he and Apple said in 1997, "The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do."

The two posts that describe, roughly, what I have in mind are as follows:

Yes, this will require some reading, and some faith, and some risk. But we have a world to win, a paradigm of finance to change, and hearts to open.

If you are interested, please contact me, via email, sanderhicksdotcom@ and consider coming to a meeting, on 2/9/13.

The Truth Party financial project : meeting 2/9/13 at 10 AM, Toby's Estate, BK, NY

We have all heard the accurate critiques of capitalism. But no one is offering to make capitalism FUN, to make it more innovative and disruptive, to make it more inclusive.

I would like to call for a meeting with like-minded souls, on the 9th of February, in a delightful café I have picked out in Brooklyn. This is the new project. This is big.

It’s about creating an online social network around world-changing entrepreneurship. We mix the power of commercial finance, with the powers of popular creativity, spiritual consciousness, and political dissent.

What if there was an app, or a tool, or a site that helps you flesh out a business model idea you have, by helping you network with your already existing social network?

This site (or app or program) could have the user fill out a set of questions based on what they need, and, based on what we define as a successful business model, the app uses people's social networks (fB, LinkedIn etc.) to flesh out the team they need for their business model. What I have found is that just by fleshing out the business model, you see a wealth of untapped potential. (I'm really into a new book called Business Model Generation. There are some images from it in this presentation on all this I gave at the Free University. And I am using these modeling tools in my current business venture, Zen Carpentry.)

This app helps to put a team together, or to suggest team members. It helps the user contact potential team members.....and gets other members of the social network aware of the project.
Users can participate as entrepreneurs, as members of an entrepreneur’s network. But more often times, users can subscribe for a small fee, and that fee makes all users shareholders in the community.

Yes, shareholders. Investors in the various ventures being formed on the network. I may need to speak to an attorney about public offering law. Or bypass the normal channels.

It has to be well designed, and fun.

I can see us building this together, cheaply, from the ground up.
