Vator.tv Puts Innovation On Display

If you’ve got a great idea, but lack a cash flow – or if the opposite happens to be true – Vator.tv may be just the place for you.  The site, which launched yesterday, intends to let “[a]nyone, across all industries, at any stage … share ideas, products, services and businesses with the rest of the world, mainly through video.”

Rafe Needleman aptly describes it as “a YouTube for entrepreneurs.”  But, silly as YouTube can be, Needleman and many others still feel Vator.tv has a real shot at success.

“[I]t could work very nicely for all parties involved,” writes Needleman.  “The site’s focus makes it a better destination for people who are pitching businesses than either an undifferentiated video site like YouTube, or even a business-focused social network like LinkedIn.”

Nonetheless, some problems may arise.  Andy Plesser – who actually likes Vator.tv – points out, “Some skeptics might wonder if an open forum is really the way to get an idea funded.  Will ideas be compromised through this sort of exposure?   Will a backer really become engaged by watching a 2-3 minute video clip?”

Then there’s the “spam factor” to consider, which, to be honest, might better be described as the “idiot factor.”  Forgive my bluntness, but after tuning in to about four minutes of American Inventor last night, I’d lost all hope for the human species, and the contents of Vator.tv could produce the same result.

Vator.tv has promise, however, and it’ll be interesting to see how this experiment in online video works out.
