Funding limit: The winners of the contests will be invited to present their ideas at a conference this fall and will be eligible to win the $10,000 Grand Prize! They’re also giving away up to $2,000 to people who help spread word of the contest to the Grand Prize Winner.
● It might play out like this: Alice enters her e-mail address below and we give her a unique invite link. Alice then e-mails her link to Bob, who also enters his e-mail address below so that we can give him a unique invite link, which he then posts to Facebook. Bob’s friend Carol sees the link, signs up to get her unique link, which she then posts to Twitter. Carol’s follower Dave then sees the link, signs up for the CoLab and creates (or helps to create) the best-ranked proposal, winning him the Grand Prize of $10,000. Once that happens we send Carol $1,000 for inviting Dave, Bob gets $500 for inviting Carol, and Alice gets $250 for inviting Bob. If the chain of friends were even longer, then we would give out another $125, $67.50, and so on. See the consent form for additional details.
