The Best Worst Business Idea

from the a-publicity-stunt dept

Not a bad idea for a contest: name the best business idea that you were sure would fail, but which turned out to be a success. The company that created the contest did so after being told that their business plan was the worst idea an investor had ever heard. I think there should be a contest for the best “stupid” quotes from investors for turning down business ideas. My personal favorite (yes, told to me): “That’s a great idea that should actually make a lot of money, but I’m not interested in that right now.” Oh well…
