Hi, my name is Arnoldus Sufjan, the founder of mystartupideas.com. I graduated from UCLA, and I’m pursuing an MBA at USC (LinkedIn Profile). In the midst of this coronavirus pandemic, I believe we, as a community, have to step up and help with innovative and creative ideas to cope with the current tragic situations. As of today (4/2), record 6.6 million Americans sought unemployment benefits last week (WSJ). In addition, there are now at least 226,374 coronavirus cases in the US (CNN).
I hope this website can be a grassroots community to brainstorm innovative and creative ideas. Hopefully, people will get inspired, start up a business that will reduce unemployment, or help the community. This is a non-profit website. Please register to contribute to the discussion: you may like the idea, promote your idea, or write a comment. – “How can we be part of the solution?”
At last, don’t forget to share this website with your friends and families. Thank you.
