Who owns my company and the associated IP?

You do. We don’t want it either. But, since we’ve covenanted to display all companies on this site, regardless of quality, we require you to grant us a license to display this content. For more details, see our Terms of Service.

Why did my company get removed?

It probably violated our Community Guidelines. If you believe it was removed in error, please contact us at [email protected].

Can I steal someone's idea to build a real startup?

No, because (1) that’d be stealing, (2) ownership of the IP posted on this site remains with their respective owners, and (3) the quality of most ideas here is questionable at best.

Also, if you do steal it, you can’t patent it because the prior art is right here.

I founded a company. What's next?

No one knows for certain what the future of a startup holds but that’s the true beauty of it.
