E-connect is a website for connecting talented people with each other across the european countries such as the example provided by  James McBennett which is :
Aashika Damodar was launching her new business Breakin Heelz she needed connections with design experts, potential investors and partners. Aashika has studied at Berkley and Cambridge and was a Skoll Emerge Fellow. Even with the great connections she has, she couldn't get through fast enough, to the right people. Spending less than £100 on OneLeap she connected with an investor, a serial entrepreneur in fashion and an award-winning designer. 
Therefore, why not have a website that would provide many things such as:
- services for connecting the right qualified people with the people who need investors, entrepreneurs, and experts.
- A platform where people could submit their resumes, and get notified when they are needed for a certain assignment.
- The website would have a discussion board where entrepreneurial topics and trends could be discussed in order to exchange ideas from people with different cultures.

How will your concept support web entrepreneurship?

This concept will support entrepreneurs in the sense of connecting talented people with one another and also to network in order to make beneficial relationships and creating more opportunities.

What kinds of resources will be needed to get this concept off the ground and scale it?

Technology : A website with someone that could manage and maintain it as a whole. Money: An annual fee for every company that would sign up.
