An Unusual Business Proposal for Google

One of the most surprising news from this week came from Aaron Stanton, a brave young man who realized he has a great idea for Google and decided to pursue his dream and transforming his vision into reality.

"On February 11th, 2007 I'm getting on a plane to fly to Mountain View, California, headquarters of Google, Inc. Once there, I'm going to try to pitch an idea to them that I think fits right in with the Google spirit and business model."

And that's what he did, but unfortunately, you have to submit your business idea on Google's website before actually getting a meeting. Aaron submitted the form, but somebody noticed his enthusiasm and spread the news at Google. The result?

"Looks like I'm going to get a chance to be heard out. I just got an e-mail from Google with the heading, We can hear you :)."

Aaron got a meeting at Google and he certainly impressed some people there. Unfortunately, we may never find out his idea. A idea that "fits right in with the Google spirit and business model". But we still have the story [tip: scroll to the bottom of the page and read it backwards].

Update: It's likely that his idea is... "a powerful tool for writers. By analyzing published novels and breaking them down into detailed statistics, then graphing those statistics scene-by-scene, we allow authors to better understand their craft in a way never before possible. You already know to start your book with a high interest scene, but do you know what to do with the scenes after that?"

Update (March 20): The site of the new project could be


  1. I am beginning to think that we ought to nationalize Microsoft if no other operating systems are allowed into the field. Ordinary users cannot afford to chunk down the money that Microsoft thinks we ought to be able to pay, to them! They have taken all of Google's sidebar ideas and applied them to Window's Vista, no doubt as an attempt to drive Google out of business. MONOPOLIES SHOW AN UGLY SIDE TO THE HUMAN CONDITION.

  2. Interesting. Big companies run on big ideas from small people. Its an interesting problem. How to get heard without being big? how to get big when you are small?

  3. He asks "What can be changed to make it easier for the average person with a good idea to really be listened to by these large companies?"

    Another really good read is this comment Truly humanizing the internet, thank you Aaron!

    Please help!

  5. lol, I wouldn't count on it, I made the same proposal to them last year. I still have my proposal plan with a time stamp on it(admittedly, I didn't bother saving the google reference number), of course mine was a more detailed plan that included how to erode into microsoft market share, and I guess they didn't like that part of the idea. Nevertheless, depending on what they do in the end, if it's similar to my proposal, I'll be unhappy(unfortunately that'll be all I can do, lol). Right now I have another idea but I can't pitch it to google, cuz it's a google buster.

  6. Interesting....

    Good point of An Unusual Business Proposal. Big companies run on big ideas from small people.


  7. Big deal. I have had big companies listen to me several times. I have my patent licensed to all the big manufacturers that make the laser level. Google is a big monster like any company that gets too big

  8. It's too bad companies like Google get too big to listen to decent business proposals. It only takes one idea (no matter who it's from) to turn a company around...or make them flourish even more!

  9. Just outline your idea without giving too much away and post it to:

    1. Very cool story, I too just left Mountain View, California, headquarters of Google, Inc along with FB and some other companies with no appointments(LOL). I have always heard of stories were people find courage after dealing with life or death issues. Unfortunately for me my courage came after watching my grandmother's casket being lowered into the ground a few months ago. I decided then to take a step foward no matter what the out come was. What I saw at these companies were amazing very inspirational. Working within the social media arena you want to believe that you have the next best thing. I guess in that regards I'm no different, but when it comes to what I am proposing this can truly impact the world. So Google if your surfing and stumble upon this before I get to you again. I have something that will generate millions of users daily, ad revenues, mobile apps etc...

  10. Thank you for the great info! Business proposals are usually difficult to write, but using this company makes the task much easier to accomplish. Communication is key in this industry, and they provide clear and fast communication.
