Hello geekzoners,

Me and friend of mine are participating(wanting to participate) in a entreprenuership challenge, where we have to write a summary of what our idea is - for first stage, write up a business plan in 2nd stage and develop it in 3rd stage. We are really looking forward to entering this challenge but we don't know where to start. I know it sounds like I want to steal your idea, but we just need a platform to start brainstorming at this point we are pretty confused, we have thought about few things but none of them sound award winning ideas and I am sure they are already developed maybe overseas probably not is NZ yet.

1) A free classified ad website with more functionality than normal classified website such as live chat capablity and quick question answer capablity.

2) An app for iphone or ipod touch to use it as mouse on any computer(this is not really a business idea)

you would need more than just an app to use an ipod or iphone as a mouse on a pc. unless of course you were duplicating the desktop on your iphone and controlling the mouse on the screen, which in that case would be a SOB to use. So small.

Also, any ideas I have I put to plan, can't be giving away my sweet ideas now can I :)

Is this a high school/uni type project?

If so, then the idea itself is not really that important.
It is how you research it and build a convincing business plan that will win you the prize/marks.
