National Service (NS)
Asked on 20 Sep 2018
Im an NSF. I have a business idea that I strongly believe that it can work. I dream and constantly plan about it now in my free time. However, I am limited to my abilities, connection and capital. Also, my mind continually discourage me because I am neither experienced nor qualified yet. Still, I want to play aggressive in my young age and am ready to start. I dream to be the Steve Jobs of South East Asia. Please suggest a direction to be a young Entrepreneur. I am insanely optimistic!
Look for government initiatives that help newly startups.
Convince friends or family to help you. If not, you can try selling your idea to potential investors. If your idea is really great, there will be people interested to join you
It's great to be optimistic.
I think you can consider breaking down your problem into a few segments.
Idea - do you think it works? How do you know it will work? Will people pay for it? Look up the concept of a minimum viable product!
People - People need to believe in your idea and vision to want to work for you. You can either find co-founders or employees. Cofounders can be found via many places: friends, mutual friends, hackathons etc.
Knowledge - Honestly, the safest best would be to have a mentor. it could be an investor or simply someone that's more experienced.
Join one of the incubators/accelerators, and try to convince them of your determination and unique idea. There's a lot of these setups in Singapore. Best of luck!
I am in your shoes. I know where where you are coming from. Come shall we meet together?

Look around for people with similar interests and share your idea with them if you are comfortable to do so. Capital shouldn't deter you from executing your idea as you can pitch your idea to potential investors or incubators and if they find it viable, I'm sure that they'll back you up by investing in your idea/providing with capital to execute your idea. First and foremost, it'll be good if you can get a good team and partner(s) as it'll be much easier to develop your idea from there!
erm....why not 对症下药 ?
Idea is worth nothing if you cant support it urself or u risk the idea being stolen.
You need a team if you manage urself and to have a team, you must have what it
takes for them to join u.
Being Aggressive with susbtance is the BEST but to do it without will only result in regret and opportunities lost.
Get the experience you needed for ur idea and see whether it really works for u.
If u are really good in the idea you had, u might even be offer a place as a partner when you prove ur worth.
Using other people money to make your own money when you have the skills and passion.
Using ur own money and pay a lesson when you have no skill and just passion.
