Startup Validation Competition: Win Free Services

The Startup Idea Competition is designed to help bootstrapped founders and entrepreneurs around the world launch validated ventures that last.

This competition rewards identifying and validating crucial hypotheses rather than writing static business plans. We believe that talking to customers is much better than building your product in a silo.

​​Submissions should focus on the process you take to test your most crucial hypotheses with customers and develop validated business models.

Ultimately we believe this approach will improve the success rate of new ventures, allowing entrepreneurs to save both time and money in the process. This competition is open to everyone around the world.
