I really like this concept too. As a (very recent) MBA graduate with a big student loan to pay off, I know I would definitely use StartBarter to help get my business idea off the ground. I also love the idea of gameifying it by letting users accumulate points / badges to show off. I wonder could users trade time instead of a monetary value? for example if I work for 2 hours on helping a designer with their business plan, could they then offer me 2 hours design time?
