Entrepreneur's Business Park Printer Friendly Version
Every area has talented people. Skills all going to waste. Dying of loneliness. And lack of opportunity. In my experience, the only people who really benefit from the agencies set-up to help entrepreneurs, are the employees who mostly do very little to actually help alleviate their struggles.
So why not introduce a true enterprise zone to help bring enterprising people together. Government funded, industrial type building - you're allowed all kinds of styles in business parks! It could be a sort of theme park for adults, with places to crash out, bars that serve good food/drinks, IT stations, art studio facilities, noticeboards, keep fit equipment including fun stuff like swings, a gym for people to play ball games etc., and most importantly, a large conference suite so that council members or big business can consult the brainy bods!
Surround the place with loads of trees, flowers. Create enough parking (could be underground). Maybe charge members an annual fee, reimburseable if they make a good contribution to help run the place efficiently/cost effectively.
For ambience, try using weatherboarding on the floor - nail down and sand the panels, apply paint/varnish! Cheap, effective, hard-wearing. Don't make ceilings too high or problems keeping place warm. Could show educational films relating to art/craft/design. Hold seminars about whatever people are interested in, e.g. tackling poverty... Could run a store re-using waste paper etc. There's so much potential, the mind boggles!
Reward: Just make it happen! Invite me along to my local think tank. That would more than suffice.

Paint can touch-up containers Printer Friendly Version
Gallon cans of paint are partially used and then recapped - without long term success. When you want to touch up a previously painted room, the paint has dried and cannot be remixed. My idea would include a small (say one ounce) container of the original paint that would be purchased with each gallon. A small container would be good for touchups and would have a long shelf life if easy to properly seal.

Erasable/Instant Dry Paint Printer Friendly Version
Why have a great painting go bad, right when you put the last touches to it, when you can just erase the mistake and paint it back in the right way?
Just use erasable instant dry paint. Just like erasable ink but in paint form. You can add a lacquer or varnish to make the paint permanent. I know most painters of canvas paintings hate to cover up some large mistake with white paint which then ruins the picture by making the picture bumpy in places. Canvas and paint is expensive to replace. Maybe we could use reloadable paint brushes with paint colors you mix your self. I don't know about the brushes but, erasable paint sounds more logical than waiting for hours while your mistakes dry.
Reward: Credit
