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. 🙏 Thanks for checking it out!!

@awt I think this is a really great initiative 🙌 Are you investing your own money into this?
Andrew TyeMakerPro@awt · Trying to make things people want
@amrith thank you!! yes, for the most part.
Andrew TyeMakerPro@awt · Trying to make things people want
@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!
Przemysław Chojecki@monkinco · make, make build, make install
@awt Great idea, but maybe winners could decide to take that small amount or give it to some charity of choice?
Andrew TyeMakerPro@awt · Trying to make things people want

@ammar_cel curious if you would be interested in bigger cash grants or additional free resources as time goes on?

Max@rdev · JS Developer
Awesome idea! Quick side note: can you pleeeease increase the line-height? Rules section is physically painful to read
