Synopsis: Kaleil Isaza Tuzman and Tom Herman have had a dream since they became friends at age fifteen: get rich by developing their own dot com company, in some aspect of computer technology interface. Now in their late twenties, they have now come up with the idea they believe will make their riches, namely as Tom refers to it, "parking tickets": the company will be the on-line revenue collection interface for municipal governments. GovWorks.com came into existence in May 1999 with only an idea. The process of building the business focuses on obtaining venture capital based solely on the idea, with the actual mechanics of the website seemingly almost an afterthought, or at least one left primarily to the hired help. Regardless of the strength of the idea itself in raising this capital, another initial problem they face is what they see as non-commitment by a third partner, Kaleil's friend Chieh Cheung. In early 2000, they do manage to go live with their product to what seems to be a promising

every major decision in my life.

And that is sit and meditate.

And I decided that...

we are Govworks.

- And that...

- That's it.

Let's call it Govworks. Com

for now.

We're not entirely sure

it's gonna be it.

But you go to Govworks. Com

to do basically anything you do

With local government.

It's a tremendous market space.

It's a vertical market

of $586 billion.

When you look at parking

tickets in New York alone,

It's about

a $500 million market.

There's a lot of money sloshing

around in this marketplace.

To get a few crumbs means a lot.

We think we have a set...

of relationships

that can make this happen.

It's a matter of execution. You'll

get the money, you've seen that.

You'll get the money

and the team.

I think it's a business that

goes. Who's the competition?

The guys that potentially

keep me up at night...

You know,

sidewalk. Com or city search...

or somebody deciding

that they want to do this.

- That's why speed is king.

- Yeah.

First mover advantage...

They'll be like any other market.

There'll be two,

three people who make it here.

One who gets half the market,

Two other people

who share the other half.

And everybody else loses.

Kaleil.

Come on. Let's get out of here.

You need to get dressed.

You can sleep in the car,

but let's go.

You slept for two hours.

What more do you need?

You're a superstar. You don't need

more than two hours' sleep.

Come on.

Come on, get up.

Let's get out of here

in five minutes, all right?

I can't believe it, dude.

We're here.

You keep saying

we're in San Francisco.

This is not San Francisco.

This is silicon valley.

It's ringing.

Is that a cell phone?

- Hey.

- Hey, it's tom.

Hey, baby.

I want to pass on some good news.

I can hardly contain myself.
