I think it is important to add:
It is extremely unlikely that zeroqode - would operate with such poor integrity; and channel all of their energy to execute on/and profit from, an idea that they “stole” from another person.
Arguably a “startup idea” contest, is a totally appropriate form of publicity for all sorts of entities here - and an opportunity for an entrepreneur to start his/her idea with a fancy pre built template.
Also worth acknowledging:
It is a sensitive and controversial situation. Where an individual is asked to share an idea that they may have thought day and night about; and may In fact be a great opportunity - to share that idea: with a well established application firm that has designers and developers at their disposal, and has no contractual agreement with contest participants.
An idea is worthless sort of speak - but an idea stands a much better chance of being brought to fruition; when it is in the right hands…
Had to share.
Easy to argue both sides here.
This contest is both a good idea and slightly controversial at the same time haha.
