Zone Startups Calgary Application
Thanks for applying! To start, it would be great to see a one-minute video introducing the founders.
Although it's completely optional, we'd love to see your personality and ideas in a short video.

In the video, please introduce yourselves, explain what you're doing and why, and tell us anything else you want about the founders or the project. It should contain nothing except the founders talking. Please don't include screenshots or post-production wizardry; we don't want this to turn into a video-making contest. If you're going to spend time making something cool, put it into your demo/product.

Please do not recite a script written beforehand; just talk spontaneously as you would to a friend. People delivering memorized speeches (or worse: text off the screen) usually come off as robotic and stupid. Unless you're a good enough actor to fake spontaneity, you lose more in the stilted delivery than you gain from a more polished message.

The video should be one minute long and should be uploaded to YouTube. If you don't want others to find it, mark it as unlisted. Don't mark it as private, as we won't be able to see it, and don't want to bother with a password. Also, before you send it to us, please try playing it yourself, and check that you can hear what you're saying. A large portion of the videos we get are inaudible, so don't start your application off on the wrong foot. If you're going to apply, you should apply with a video we can hear and understand.

Please enter the video URL below.
What's your company name?
About the product.
Tell us about your product.
Why did you pick this idea to work on? Do you have domain expertise in this area? How do you know people need what you're making?
What's new about what you're making? What substitutes do people resort to because it doesn't exist yet (or they don't know about it)?
If you've already started working on it, how long have you been working and how much have you built so far? (Are you launched? If so, how many users do you have?)
How far along are you? Do you have a beta yet? If not, when will you?
Was any of your code written by someone who is not one of your founders? If so, how can you safely use it? (Open source is okay, of course.)
If you have an online demo, what's the URL? (Please don't password-protect it. Just use an obscure URL.)
