More importantly we encourage the establishment of startups... "change the ratio" the urban version! Already we're facing "I have a brilliant idea I just need a developer! The ideas are great and more importantly truly needed!
Yet as each plan is presented... I see blatant holes in the business model, strategy design, user interface ... mainly from lack of knowledge!
My partner said it simply, "you have to make it sexy for our people!"
They want the "Matrix" meets the "Minority Report"... and he is not off track. Few want to do the research, investigate, challenge and INNOVATE!
So as I'm sitting trying to figure out how to communicate the design process and what makes for a successful product to someone who insist they have a "winning" idea. I am reminded of my fashion design process! I Have to make tech SEXY!I use several design techniques but eventually before they hit the shelf they must be redesigned from an art perspective to a consumer product focus! I usually use the educate, Investigate, brainstorm leave to simmer then design from "inspiration". The fact is in that process "inspiration is a carefully induced process!

ABOUT TIBIAE TECH
We're presently Working onm the Tibiae tech concept and language.. The Space will launch in September and we are currently identifying and working with our first stratups!
Tibiae Tech Solutions provides technology, funding , mentorship, incubation, marketing and distribution to enable experts in niche local micro sectors who answer the question “what would you do with technology if you could?” to access and develop technologies, focused on scalable next generation concepts! Tibiae Tech brings the Silicon Culture into local neighborhoods as a start-up designed specifically to facilitate the adoption, adaptation and creation of new and emerging technology by and for local entrepreneurs! Tibiae Tech seeks to help local experts make culturally relevant and successful transitions to the inevitable tech powered "solution" within their niche and thus proactively create effective solutions. Tibiae tech’s mission is focused on shifting the economic decline in urban communities into thriving businesses that can compete in today’s emerging high-growth marketplace. As opposed to the usual one-level approach, Tibiae Tech will employ a multi- pronged strategy utilizing the comprehensive resources to develop, nurture and support a successful small business.
Tibia Tech is in the business of change management addressing the glaring problem of lack of minority-owned businesses in today’s tech sector and the adoption of technology in today’s business culture. By proving space, pools of resources and making them accessible, we can jump-start these businesses. We first conceptualized an “irrigation” system that would funnel resources to urban tech start-ups, as well as an incubator with relevant mentorship, training and support. Founders also noted that we we would not only need an incubator and an accelerator but we would have to develop a “hatchery” and started brainstorming the challenge of fostering new ideas. The fact is fact we need to create a pollination and fertilization process before we can incubate... Distribution needed to be supported by offline and online venues connected and integrated seamlessly across digital platforms and so the Tuberiam was designed. We opted for the co-working model. in order to fulfill the small business needs, Tibiae Tech has to create the resources/ thus experts in each discipline are coming together to provide their expertise and creating a culturally sensitive programing and resource solutions. That introduces new concepts in Business as well as new and elerging technologies ad encorages exploration ad testing theories through to concept and product development! the challeng e of support staff ad their technical training will also be addressed! To facilitate this a comprehensive funding and financing protocol will be put in place! Tibia Tech believes that a comprehensive approach will create the necessary traction needed to push ahead. Tibia Tech July 1st we begin p[rparing the core members with a soft launch with a target date of September for a permanent location
