🔥 Who can submit a Project?

📂 What are Resources?
Resources are basically links to external blogs, videos, podcasts, and newsletters that we've curated from various sources. We've included fundamental topics like idea validation, product development, team building
👀 I’m afraid that someone will steal my idea if I post it as a project.
Sure, there's no way of preventing that. However, usually the most beneficial thing for founders is to actually talk about the idea to as many people as possible. You've maybe heard the phrase "ideas are cheap - what matters is the execution!"
Here and here are some good reads about the topic.
🌎 What is the scope of the Projects & Profiles?
For now, we've decided to include only Finland-based projects and profiles so that we can, in the best possible way, support people who are using the platform. This may change in the future, so stay tuned!
💡 How did Kiuas Inside come about?
Throughout the years, we have been regularly approached by people looking for either co-founders for their own projects or early-stage projects to join as co-founders.
Being unable to effectively help these individuals led up to an idea of an online platform connecting three assets - projects, people, and resources. During the summer of 2019, we decided on the final concept and built Kiuas Inside in-house, with the support of our awesome beta group consisting mainly of our alumni.
