I am interested in creating a business where we could purchase hosiery that is less popular at a discount. An example of this, would be brown or navy blue hosiery for men, in a particular style, in a particular size. My business would try to gather several of us together so that businesses can create the garments just for us. If there are enough of us, then it would work out for everybody.
My idea would be similar to Groupon, http://www.groupon.com/ and Kickstarter. http://www.kickstarter.com/help/faq#WhatIsKick
I know that these questions are complex, so you can leave a comment after any question. If you have any questions, then you could ask at the end of the survey, and/or at the blog entry comments section.
