this is a school.
a school where you can take any idea you’re excited about, figure out how to bring it to life, and turn it into something that people give a shit about.
work on ideas that excite you.
maybe you wanna build an app.
create a youtube channel.
get your first 1000 subscribers.
launch your own game.
sell your art online.
research new ai models.
no idea is too big, or too small. we don't care if you're making robots, or producing dope beats. pursue your passions.
this is not a course.
or a step-by-step tutorial. or a bootcamp. we won’t show you how to code a web app, how to open up FL studio to record a beat, how to set up a shopify store, etc.
that knowledge is literally a google/youtube search away.
it all starts with nights and weekends.
you'll pick your own idea, build it, get feedback, and iterate. best way to learn is to just build.
we know you probably got a job, school, or whatever. that’s fine.
how it works is pretty simple.
week 1, you'll lock down your idea -- maybe you wanna make a new ai app, write a book, research new bio-tech shit, make a yt channel, whatever.
week 2, you'll create the first version of your idea if you haven't already.
week 3, 4, 5, 6 -- you'll iterate on your idea each week alongside thousands of others and push your project forward.
maybe you get some new users, maybe you ship a new demo of your game, maybe you edit the first 30s of your short film, whatever. each week you'll make progress.
at the end, we give away $100,000.
first we pick our final 32. these 32 are chosen based on their progress over the season.
maybe you went from zero to 1000 subscribers, maybe you went from $0 to $500 in preorders for your hardware device, whatever. everyone has an equal shot of getting into the final 32.
over the season, put in the work and show us what you got.
to be clear — this $100k is simply a motivator.
if all you care about is getting the money please do not apply. but, if you want to spend 6-weeks pushing your idea forward alongside other motivated dreamers, we would love to have you.
so — how do we choose who gets the $100k?
we'll put the 32 in a bracket and run a live gameshow with audience voting to decide who gets the cash. it's pretty fun.
last season we gave $25,000 to 4 projects — a musician, a film maker, a game developer, and a farmer.
irl in sf and dubai.
after it's all said and done, everyone who participated is invited out to a 3-day IRL event in SF and Dubai at the end of August.
what happens after 6 weeks?
we'll identify the people hustling and creating interesting things and invite them to build with us full-time for 3-months in SF.
oh. and it's 100% free.
you're ready. start making cool shit.
