Well I think what you describe, plenty of people would love to happen haha
I think the problem of some of us (me included) like to build things just for pleasure.
The problem might be we build without a purpose. I always used to have plenty of ideas and want to create one project after another but it’s hard after you realize you don’t get any income from it haha
You can even build a GREAT product, and it solves a REAL problem, but if people don’t know about your product, well it doesn’t matter.
That’s where marketing comes in, and unfortunately is quite hard nowadays and a lot of people (again me included) are bad at it.
I was involved in a startup environment, spent time in an incubator here in Paris, looking for funding with VCs and government aids. And around me, I saw cool projects, with real value and I also saw others that were just ok projects.
The projects that were getting more funded, were the ones that could prove they found their market fit and had a constant flow of new users. And most of the time those were good because of their marketing and sales team haha
I recommend you to read some of Paul Graham’s articles or Y Combinator’s articles, they are quite good and full of valuable information for when you are building a product.
If someone for a reason would like to pay you for building a bunch of products, That person would need to get back something from it.
VC’S give some money to multiple startups in the pre-seed stage and seed stage, hoping one of those will be a good one and become the next unicorn.
So maybe if you say, I have 5 product ideas and I need (variable_amount_of_money) for building all of them, then maybe someone could fund you. Obviously, this person would get an amount of equity of all the apps you are building, in case any of them turn to bring some real profit.
What I see little problematic, why would someone invest this way? I mean it’s quite risky and the person really needs to believe in you or the products you want to build.
Maybe a community would work better? Some type of community money pool where the must upvoted maker will get the funds at the end of building the products? And the community owns equity on the products he builds? Hmmm
But how to push these products? Imagine you have the funding solved, by a money pool. But nobody wants to own equity of some apps that will not grow haha We would need to find a way to promote them after, some good marketing agencies that can bring users to these apps.
It’s an interesting topic, I hope more people will engage in it.
