Like most of you, I have some good start-up ideas I feel are both good and easily realizable. Of course, I have plenty of 'real' work to do for more mature projects, so I have difficulty convincing myself starting work on a completely new idea just because it has potential and sounds exciting is a better use of my time.
However, if there were a competition, even just for the fun of it, where I contend with others to conceptualize, design, develop and launch a startup within 48 hours, that would be fantastic.
This way I know I can compartmentalize the work to be over a weekend, force myself to get feedback and exposure early on, and if it seems worthwhile, I can pursue the idea further. If the competition gives opportunity to meet and work with new people, even better. If there are small prizes to be won - motivation.
So, is there something like that already? I know of some for specific languages, like Django Dash, but that's just once a year, and I would like something at least within the next month, and not necessarily bound to a specific paradigm. Or would someone like to join me in starting something like that?
