Fresh out of university or stuck in a 9 to 5 job, you probably wonder how you can change things around and eventually make your love project into a profitable business.

Look for co-founders

Join projects 

If you’ve always wondered when (or whether) your big idea would come and never really felt like pursuing any project on your own yet, it’s time to look around among the posted projects. You might fall in love with one or simply put your knowledge and skills to use. Success is rarely about that one big idea, it’s about execution. There’s no point in waiting around: join a project and find your tribe. 

With everything you need to get started put in one place, you have no excuses anymore: get out there, work hard and make it happen.
