"We undertake hundreds of projects each year. We have developers with expertise in a wide range of product development from electronics to software to mathematics and chemistry to sales and marketting. We have come to understand that three types of people are required to take a project from the initial idea to market." said Ashley Barker, President and CEO of Soltec - Solutions in Technology.
The Soltec systems attempts to collect the following people:
1. Ideas people - People who have great ideas for a product or project. Usually these people do not have the expertise or resources to push the idea into development.
2. Consultants - People who have the expertise to work on a project. For example, This can including building, designing or marketing a product.
3. Investors - People with money who want to fund a great new innovative project and benefit from the great rewards once the project becomes profitable. Usually these people do not have any technical expertise and would love to be involved in an interesting project but cannot find anything they would trust to be a success.
As new project ideas arrive, Soltec staff will vet the ideas and determine which ideas are viable. Analysts will determine which skills are required and then find consultants for particular jobs. Agreements will then be made to determine shares in each project depending on the contribution by each party. All ideas remain confidential until a consultant is actually signed up to work on the project they will not know the exact details of the project.
Anybody can sign up to the system simply by visiting http://www.soltec.net.au and clicking 'apply to join our team'. A current CV is required.
Soltec hopes this system will allow professional developers looking for extra money and hobbiests with a great amount of passion to work side by side and maximise the skills and resources available to produce some great results.
