So You Have the Big Idea - Now What?

So You Have the ‘Big Idea’ – Now What?

Editor’s Note:  Bob Mander, founder of,  spent much of his career dealing with mind-bending government acronyms like OSDBU, LORACS and SME.  A technical writer of government documents for 10 years, Mander also had a ‘big idea’ about how to demystify this kind of insider jargon.  Over the years, he’s assembled what he calls a resource library where government workers, contractors NGOs, elected officials, media and befuddled citizens alike can, among other things, quickly unravel the meaning of obscure government acronyms. Bringing that idea to life has been his passion for the last four years.  With his site nearly ready to launch, we asked Mander to write about the challenge of trying to interest investors in his new idea.
