    Default Starting a computer brand

    I am sort of addicted to business and a serial entrepreneur of sorts, I recently joined a team who is developing a new computer brand.

    I was wondering if anyone has any contacts with manufactures that can build cases and if anyone of here would be interested in helping design a case for the company.

    If you are interested shoot me an email at info@makeascenenow.com

    I'd be interested in helping but I have no practical experience. I am currently studying to become a mechanical engineer so I will be taking more advanced design classes soon. I always thought it would be a neat job to be one of the people who designs cases for computer companies. Not to mention I have been thinking of starting a company just haven't any idea of what.

    I am curious about this company. Are you looking to become big and compete with companies such as IBM, HP, Sony, Dell, and Gateway? Building purpose built machines and well know for it within that field like for example Alienware which makes gaming computers but doesn't really serve buisness/home users. Or are you going kind of like an assembly type company such as ibuypower.com that makes decent gaming computers but uses mostly off the shelf components and cases available separately.

    we do not have the funds to get to that point. We are planning on starting the company and then selling it after around a year to someone who actually has the funds to run it then we will most likely work for them to continue to do the work.
