Web Entrepreneurs face a big challenge in getting local, on the ground support to help them raise a platform, idea, or movement. I'd be interested to see how you use the GetUpp app, http://www.getupp.com/, which helps people get motivated through peer review and social networks (okay, let's be honest, this is on-line peer pressure and it's great).

Maybe you can think about helping web entrepreneurs build on the ground capacity through a mix of technology and social capital like this.

If you want help applying for this grant, let me know if you want to talk more about your idea and how I could help you apply for support.

See,
