the evenings out here - Thoughts, rants and musings about absolutely everything except photography. Or cats.

Well, I can now announce to the world (or at least the 3 people who read this stuff) what my new job is. Since Monday I am the "Concept Development Manager" at Imaginventure, in Lugano, Switzerland. And I'm busy. Imaginventure_buste C65-1.jpg Imaginventure is "an integrated full-service business integrator". We select and transform ideas for online services into successful businesses. Unlike other companies working in this area, Y Combinator for example, we build up concepts internally, rather than provide seed funding for new startups. However, we have other mechanisms for partnering to bring new ideas in house. The area we are working in is, loosely, consumer mobile web, and we are particularly interested in areas such as community-enhanced gaming and location based services. I would certainly be interested to hear from people involved in building business in these areas. I can be contacted at work at dmantripp AT imaginventure DOT com.
