Looking forwards to competing against some of you 🙂

  1. Hi,
    Thanks for sharing, I read about the Battle-Fin competition before…it looks interesting, however one has to be aware of few points:

    -the $20mm are an overall figures, and will be split. At best, if you are in the elite category and arrive first, you get $6mm.

    -more importantly, for me at least:

    from FAQ:

    “Will you sign an NDA? How do I know you won’t steal my idea?”

    “No, we won’t sign an NDA. No venture firm would at this stage. The informal commitment to secrecy on our application form is more than any VC would make.”
