Buy Local! You have the power to sustain your local economy...
Create an application on popular mobile platforms and web-based, that helps people find locally-owned businesses to buy from. It could be a marketplace that can process orders for products created by local companies, or an intuitively designed reference guide for restaurants and services. I envision a location-aware mobile application, that can pin-point nearby locally-owned businesses or is searchable by product type. In this international economy its ever-increasingly important to support local business and locally-produced products, because they create local jobs and contribute to local taxes.
