MY "AHA" MOMENT:
We were looking for local information on the web and were tired of getting world-wide-web search results and lots of advertising clutter. We also found that local information is often incomplete and inaccurate.
THE BIG IDEA:
We have developed a database system that returns only local information accurately, and completely and without all the advertising clutter. It includes everything from local businesses to non-profit organizations, as well as schools and government offices, basically every entity within the local community.
WHY MY IDEA IS BETTER THAN THE REST:
We are different because we pick up where others have left off. We manually collect, verify and maintain local-only info in our system. We then disseminate that local community info to anyone who wants it through websites, mobile website, phone apps and an API, without the advertising clutter.
THE SKY'S THE LIMIT:
We will used funds raised to begin beta roll-outs of these concepts in two target cities, Mt. Pleasant, Michigan and South Padre Island, Texas are currently at the top of our list.
We'll then roll-out in neighboring cities:
Michigan: Clare, Harrison, Gladwin, Alma, St. Louis, Shepherd, Farwell, etc.
Texas: Port Isabel, Los Fresnos, La Feria, Mercedes, Weslaco, etc.
