I'm Starting a Company Who's In?

  1. Jun 29, 2003 #1
    Okay, in about 5 years, I will be starting a company.

    What will this company do?
    We will design RF ciruits and/or solid state spintronic devices (eventually quantum computers).

    What kind of people do I need?
    1 Accountant/Patent Attorney/Business Entrepreneur, ~5 RF IC Design Engineers, ~5 RF System Engineers, ~5 Cleanroom Engineers, 2 Computer Weenies (networking nerds), 2 Electrical Technicians, 2 Applied Physicists

    Where will this company be located?
    Preferably Madison, Wisconsin... possibly Minneapolis, Minnesota.

    Will we rule?
    As long as I'm charge, yes.

    Well, I was actually thinking of just leasing a building that came with janitorial service... that way, there's fewer people on the payroll.

    Maybe when the company grows we can figure out how to employ you.

    What is your specialty anyway?

    I think I'm going to go with jb's idea and hire interns for the marketing campaign. Their young, they know what's hip... and I can pay them a measly $10 per hour, yet they'll be happy just to have the experience. Each year around Christmas time, I can give them a whopping $1 per hour raise and watch them wet their pants with excitement.

    you will need a creative advertizing consultant, baggsy that job, but can we locate in london i cant commute to the usa each day.

    Might be cheaper to locate company in china/ india, as there are lots of tech people there willing to work for very low wages - more money for you.

    If this idea works, I would not object to having 1% of the profits for this suggestion.

    greedy you only get a share of profits if contribut directly to the company.

    Is there an opening for Random Button Pusher #3?

    Net Admin here...I'll join your buisness venture ;) Course, in 5 years I'll (hopefully) be a graduated math major, with sights set on grad school, but hey, who knows.

    in 5 years i just may be a junior at UW-Madison (soph. in high school now in Milwaukee)

    I can come be a weenie... of course I'm not a cheap weenie. in fact I'm a very costly (yet valuable) weenie.

    And you'll need to relocate to California.. I've been to Wisconsin... no comparison..cheese and bars or beaches and babes;) Come out here and work on your tan


    That's of course if I'm not a doctor by then....*shrug* who knows..

    ..Do you need a philosopher/Molecular Biologist??

    You know...for those hard questions...

    "Is it right, to build Quantum computers? How do the quanta feel about being 'Used' in this way? Are the quanta alive?" and so on...

    You know, its these sorts of questions which businesses have to ask themselves to make it into the big time...

    heh..in 4 years i will have completed my photonics/telecomunications course. You need someone with those sort of qualifications?
  20. Jul 2, 2003 #19
    i'll apply if you need a physical chemist (i am still one in training)

    i can drive stick and i am a very, very, terrible dancer.

    If you'd settle for taking a position as a chemical engineer / wafer processing engineer, we could use you.

    If you can get a motorcycle license and learn to play bass, that would be cool too.
