Startup.com

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

New gun spins me around

New gun spins me around

New gun spins me around

Right there.

I like that.

Yeah, that's good.

Tom, turn your head a little

this way, eyes at the camera.

Kaleil, tilt your head

a little more.

Yes, right there.

Okay, I'm ready.

You guys leaving?

I'm going to start

an internet company.

Do you want twists or braids?

I- I don't want twists.

- Do you want braids?

- No, I don't want braids.

You want two open ponytails?

Yeah.

Okay. Well,

that's what you've got.

Okay, look at me.

Look at me.

It's okay.

They're actually...

If you look, they're pretty far off.

One's up in the front,

and one's in the back.

- Do you want them even? I want them even.

- No, no.

- No, I don't want them even.

- Don't move.

This is not good enough.

- Gonna get them more even.

- Even.

I know.

Life is tough, babe.

There's a lot of hardship

in life.

And one of them is

your father doing your hair.

That's one of the hardships

of life...

that little girls

have to deal with, just like you.

- How's that?

- It's beautiful.

What do you think?

Oh, my god! You're

wearing a suit that matches.

- I'm wearing a suit...

- And a tie. - And a tie.

I have an important announcement

to make.

And that is that we have

a new C.E.O.

He has recently left

Goldman Sachs...

and is now on full time

with public data systems,

Soon to be govworks.

- So, Kaleil, welcome to the team.

- Thank you, tom.

- We're glad to have you here.

- I want to, in the same vein,

Thank you guys

for your patience.

This is the beginning

of a great thing.

And I'm grateful to all of you

for the confidence in me...

that we're going to be able

to make this happen,

And we are going

to make it happen.

Just look at that

on the screen...

and tell me this is not

the brand of the 21st century.

Govworks. Com. We got it.

This is it.

Well done.

Do you use e-Mail?

Are you on the internet? - No.

- Do you use e-Mail?

- I really do. Yes.

You do?

Let me ask you a question.

We have a company.

We're choosing between two names.

One name is Govworks,

Or nextown,

N-E-X-T-O-W-N. - Nextown.

- If you were going to invest...

- In Nextown, that's right.

- Why?

- Sounds better. I don't know.

It just attracts me more.

I don't like government.

I don't like being

a company that's called "GOV".

Less than ten minutes ago,

we were slapping high fives,

And giving hugs

and spreading love.

And now you're ready

to quit the company.

What company

do you work for? - Nextown.

You work where? In the next

town? - No, no, do this with me.

What's the name of your

company? - Nextown technologies.

- I work for Govworks.

- What do you do?

We're an internet portal.

We facilitate interactions...

between local government

and their constituents.

We help government work.

Do you have $11?

I have four bucks.

This is "charge it day". - This

is the billion dollar start-Up.

We can't pay for dinner.

You know what?

Forget about investors.

What do you want?

I want the company to be called

unto Caesar. Com.

- That's the whole problem.

- Okay.

Hi, I'm Kaleil coming to sell you

a $2 million systems integration,

Uh, Mr. Mayor.

And I'm from unto Caesar.

Nice to meet you. - Yeah.

Come on, now.

I can live with it

because I love it.

At this point, Kaleil,

why don't you...

close your eyes or take a walk,

and come back with a decision.

Because that's ultimately

what you're going to have to do.

When you come back

the decision is going to be final,

And we're all going to be happy

about it. - I'm gonna go meditate.

I did what I do before...
