This is actually incredibly exciting.

Per usual, I am a fan of the business incubator concept -- I think it's a solid way to pool talent and train successful entrepreneurs but what's really exciting here is this idea of collective upside.

One of the biggest strengths of programs like these is that you get a -lot- of entrepreneurs in the same room at the same time, the problem is that they are all technically "fighting" for the same resources. If you make it so that the success of one is tantamount to the success of all of them, I think you help foster teamwork and improve the overall success of the program.

With the pedigree of the people working on this project, I'm sure it will do well. Looking forward to hearing more about it.
