PRLog - May 15, 2012 - LOS ANGELES -- Los Angeles - MIIGLE \ˈmē -gəl\ (www.miigle.com), a new startup that sets out to re-engineer the process of innovation and make entrepreneurship more accessible to the world has launched its much anticipated public beta. MIIGLE, which is derived from the words “Mingle” and “Ideas”, is a social network that helps its members share and develop their ideas by leveraging each other’s resources as a community.
The founder of MIIGLE is Luc Berlin, a Social “Netrepreneur” and Digital Globalization Strategist who’s worked for various Internet and High Tech companies in the Los Angeles area, including LegalZoom.com, and Shopzilla.com. Originally from Cameroon, Mr. Berlin is very much a global citizen; he’s traveled the world, speaks French, English, Spanish, and is learning Chinese Mandarin. He also holds a MBA in Global Business from Pepperdine University. It therefore comes as no surprise that he’s found building a platform that would empower entrepreneurs globally.
“Entrepreneurship happens everywhere,” says Luc Berlin. “Whether it’s here in the U.S. or abroad, the main barriers faced by entrepreneurs are very much the same – need of initial support, lack of knowledge, and limited access to funding. Despite the current rise in global entrepreneurship, there are millions of people with great ideas being left out because they don’t know how to get started. With MIIGLE we are trying to get ahead of that curve by essentially building a virtual ecosystem where people around the world with ideas can logon and be nurtured by other members attracted to the story they are creating. Our mission is to power human innovation and economic progress by helping people leverage the power of social collaboration to foster great ideas and turn them into something concrete.”
This is a vast departure from the conventional belief that ideas should be kept private, and potentially the first attempt to incite entrepreneurial ventures through an open process.
“Ideas are great but execution is everything. At MIIGLE, we believe people have a lot more to gain by sharing their ideas and allowing others to help them get the resources they need,” concluded Mr. Berlin.
Founded in 2011, MIIGLE is a LA-based startup that provides a social network for its members to share and develop ideas. MIIGLE helps entrepreneurs turn their ideas into action by leveraging resources within a socially collaborative community. MIIGLE is currently in public Beta.
