We fund all startups at a $1,000,000 valuation if they submit 100 customer interviews.

Have a ONE ON ONE / SYNCHRONOUS conversation with 100 people who have the problem you want to solve. Listen more than you talk. Do not mention your solution. Do not say the word "would". Do this 100 times in 50 days and submit the results below and we ( @adamberk taking all the financial risk with friends adding support but they are not on the hook for any money) will invest UP TO $10,000 in your startup at a $1,000,000 valuation.

YOUR FIRST STEP IS FILLING OUT THIS FORM 10 times over the next 10 days with ten interviews. Less than 10% of the people who read this are able to follow through! Your first round of funding will be no more than $1,000 to run your next experiment.

Testimonials and FAQ
"Serve Smart ‏@serve_smart 2h2 hours ago
@sechrest @adamberk @hubsea The #MilValChal is the single biggest driver of my startup's learning and growth right now."

Questions? Tweet @Deccelerator or @adamberk (but if you ask a question before you submit your first interview, the valuation dips by 20%+:)

If a mentor challenged you on twitter with hashtag #milvalchalmentor, you only have to do 75 interviews, but you have to submit your first one within 48 hours and your first 5 within a week.

(@christian... yes we added the one on one language after - but still plenty of cues that it had to be one on one ABSOLUTELY NO FOCUS GROUPS OR GROUP INTERVIEWS that's the whole fucking point of it otherwise it would be easy:)

@paywithchip good luck!

I will do no harm. I am not entitled to anything. I will not take advantage of this program or the mentors. I know that if I take advantage of the liberal nature of this program (funding for everyone) that I could jeopardize it for others.
