What is one problem you would solve/product to develop if money wasn't an issue?

If you had Elon level money, financial backing, and recruitment to get a bunch of the most brilliant folks this earth has on it to row in a direction you specified. Where would you point the ship? What product would you build? How much would you charge?

I'm not sure I'd create a product - but I'd try to solve issues that aren't product-based. Homelessness, climate change, hunger. These real-world issues could be addressed, but instead, Elon now owns Twitter.

@paul_vanzandt Yeah, I see the hypocrisy there, quite a bit of virtue signaling over an acquisition. I will digress though, if you dig in to one of those problems mentioned, there is a solution that would have to scale to solve the problem, scale doesnt happen really without an economic backing, now that wont always be "product" on a shelf, I agree. But the solutions will be backed by entities aiming for capital efficiency in one way or another, and that often ends up in productized approach, so progress can be measured in some way shape or form relative to the real costs. Those are great problems, I think they are all incredibly pertinent and could use your/our collective entrepreneurial spirit and plenty of capital to solve them! R+D in these areas is sadly quite underfunded to your point, and 44 Bills could have arguably gone somewhere more altruistic

Something related to medicine definitely. The current healthcare systems don't have the resources to adapt to the current needs so.. Specialists, nurses shortage, regular overworking, burnout, lack of resources. There's a big problem existing that needs to be solved but probably still won't be solved in the near future. Btw, everyone, we’re launching in late May. Check out our upcoming PH page: www.producthunt.com/upcoming/eff... Our project is called: Effecto. It’s an app for detailed habits, health, symptoms, and meds tracking. Pretty much for everything that is related to your physical or mental health and every daily factor that can affect you.

@kmelaika I tend to agree, innovation needs to come into those areas, especially as demand for care increases due to a large populous coming into ages where healthcare is needed more frequently. Good thing Effecto addresses this in part!

making India's air much more clean

@prabuddh_gupta a worthy goal, maybe some carbon sequestration technology? Air scrubbers?
Prabuddh Gupta
@dylan_merideth yes, and going back to basics never fails. planting more trees. Lot of deforestation has happened over the last few years. My locality in Delhi has less than 100 trees, i am talking about 4 sq km area. Approx population, > 100,000.

It is a really interesting topic. I think I would create a platform that would be free for users but I could pay people there. Basically, it could be teaching. learning platform where people who cant afford an education could study. Hmmm... maybe I should start implementing this idea 🦄 who is in?
