Bored Elon Musk Launches Seed Fund 🌱💰
Pitch Bored Elon Musk 💡
A message from serial inventor Bored Elon Musk:

Every single day, I receive emails from people asking for help with their inventions and products. I typically ignore these requests because I'm very busy building extremely unnecessary technologies that temporarily alleviate my boredom. But I've come to realize that I'm just one human and I can only scale my time and knowledge so much. It's time to give back to the universe.

With that in mind, I'm mildly excited to share that I'm opening up my wallet and investing in all of you through the Bored Elon Seed Fund.

I'm calling for the world's greatest and worst product builders to pitch me directly on Twitter. One week from today, I will select the best three submissions and their respective creators to receive an early stage investment of five million seedlings of Kentucky Bluegrass in exchange for 0% of their company.

Should your invention be selected, not only will you receive enough resources to cover roughly 325 square meters of dirt, but you'll be joining a community

Let's make the universe a better place. Together.


Tips: Get creative! Go through Bored Elon's timeline for inspiration. Make sure to link to the newsletter and include #PitchBoredElon in your tweet.

Example Pitch: "Coffee cup lids that change color when you've ACTUALLY sealed them." 💡
