Joining the pilot was absolutely free. And it was even possible to earn some money if you won the "Best Team" or another award. Check out the winners and the categories here
. Moreover, the best performers will be rewarded with prizes
. And we are planning on micro-financing your first startup steps as well if you are one of the top gamepreneurs.
Maybe you are questioning how this is possible, seeing as someone has to develop the platform, create content and offer support to the users. Well, we believe that pilots needed to be free because we asked our users to give us feedback in return. We are a registered non profit
and we have companies and individuals supporting the diversity in tech. That's how we could afford to build the platform and run the pilots. Mostly, however, we invested our own time and money into it. That's called bootstrapping a business.
Now that the pilots are over, access to the platform is going to be paid: either with time or with money. Why are we doing it? As entrepreneurs, we don't believe that people value free stuff just as much as something that they invest time or money in. It's that simple: we want you to get the most value out of being in the game. And for that you need to either pay a low fee or perform some community-building tasks and earn your access.
What's important is that we put 50% of the user fees into a Treasury, which is how we will be able to give out prizes and micro-funding to he best performers.
So, yes, it is possible to get access to the platform without paying a single euro. Moreover, you can earn money while learning.
