Hey PH... We are launching this because we think that a lot of makers are building cool products because they enjoy it - not because they want to raise a bunch of venture capital. For people making products on the side, a small amount of cash is awesome. On the other hand, a lot of people with Silicon Valley aspirations don't have the resources or network to get there very easily. A small amount of money can be life-changing. I hope in some way this simple program will inspire makers everywhere - regardless of background, connections, or resources. πŸ™ Thanks for checking it out!!

@amrith I've also been talking to some companies about other non-cash things we can add to this to make it better. Hope that can come in the next week or two!

@awt Great idea, but maybe winners could decide to take that small amount or give it to some charity of choice?
