The Details

We've all been there... the great idea you stumble upon while talking with friends or that business plan that's in the back of your mind every day at the office. "Yeah, I should work on that sometime", you say. But then weeks go by and you still have nothing to show for it. No more.

2012 is the year we kill the Wantrapreneur in you once and for all. We're here to help you take the first step and have over $50,000 in prizes that say you can do it.

What do I have to do?

  1. Buy the AppSumo Lean Startup Bundle
  2. Get off your Sumo butt and take action. Put your idea out into the world and start working on it!
  3. Submit your entry and we'll post it up for the community to vote on it.

Lifetime hosting from WPEngine

WordPress gurus WPEngine are giving away two lifetime Personal plans (regularly $29/mo) for years of rock-solid, worry free hosting.

AppSumo Credit!

Up to $1000 in AppSumo credit is up for grabs for those Sumo-lings who kill their inner Wantrapreneur.

When does this start?

The challenge begins on March 9th and ends on March 31st at 11:59pm CST. Then from April 10 to April 25, entries will be added to the community voting page as they are received. Once the challenge ends, our wise Sensei Sumos will gather to choose the winner based on the quality of the idea, how much action the company has taken and the overall community votes.
