Failed Startup Idea Day

Elevator Pitch: "It's like foursquare but with websites!"

User Interaction Model:

  • Gain titles and unlock achievements simply by visiting your favourite websites. No smartphone or GPS required!

  • Compete with others to become the "Mayor", by sitting in your basement on Friday night endlessly refreshing CNN.com.

  • Publish your entire Internet browsing history to your Facebook feed to show "where you've been" to all of your jealous friends.

Business Model:

  • Measure website check-ins with a special browser add-on. Bundle BonzaiBuddy and the ASK Toolbar with each download. Check "install this" by default.

  • Allow users to purchase bulk amounts of website check-ins so they don't have to refresh the pages manually (the Farmville model).

  • Profit!

Expected "Live" Date: Fall 2013

Expected Profitability Date: Immediate

Venture Capital Requested: $1.2 million
