Wish list for requests of the local, state, country, and EU governments. Entrepreneurs suggest things they need from the government and other entrepreneurs vote on them. Governments interested in fostering startups can respond to popular requests.

Crowdsourcing entrepreneurial requests of the government. (sorta kinda like this challenge, but on a more permanent basis) For example, startups not only need money, but perhaps data, connections, licenses, and other things that the government provides that may be difficult for startups to access. This service would crowdsource requests and have entrepreneurs vote on what would be most valuable for them. Local, State, National, and EU governments that want to promote startups can evaluate the requests and try to fulfill the most popular ones.

How will your concept support web entrepreneurship?

Concept would provide access to government leaders at all levels, increased awareness of the needs of Web entrepreneurs, increased government responsiveness and accelerated solutions.

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

Perhaps most important is getting buy-in and commitment from government leaders, to select an entrepreneur-approved initiative to tackle each quarter.
