We went ahead and did it.  You can now enter to have your start up built for $100.

What is $100 Start Up?

Simple, we have assembled a team of experienced industry experts with expertise in programming, user interface, traffic generation and art, who like to build cool stuff. We put our heads together and launched 100dollarstartup.com as a way to allow big ideas get off the ground without the need for big financial backers and big business infrastructure.

With 50 years combined experience in the industry (whatever that means to you!), we have seen ideas come and go and, oftentimes, good ideas fail due to poor execution, bad management or “too many cooks in the kitchen.”

We created the $100 start-up to help you avoid these pitfalls.

The concept is simple. Write your idea down, submit it to our team and pay 100 bucks. Our team will review all the submissions and we will choose ONE idea every 90 days to build. At the end of those 90 days your project is launched and is yours to keep.

If nothing else, it will give you something MORE than a powerpoint presentation, a word document or a drawing on a napkin to take to market.

Check out the site for more information and get submitting.  Sure, it’s a gimmick, but it’s highly practical if you think about the kind of work and dev shop we run.  Pool the best ideas and limit the risk to the entire pool……

We welcome your comments on this blog or the 100dollarstartup.com site.
