In my point of view this challange could find its solution, in a 'online basement' where "Makers", the people who got the ideas, meet the "Believers" the people who got the money to finance ("believe") in those ideas.

Start-ups usually rent space in larger buildings. This way they are hidden and are not know. Perhaps a Google Map just for Manhattan or San Jose, sponsored by an overarching organization would bring some visibility to these innovative teams.

Did you ever run into an idea which you felt you can not realize? Imagine what would happen with you if you are able to put every of your flash ideas into practice. You begin to live in the way you want to - what stops you from doing your thoughts?
