Our forums are home to one of the most vibrant and exciting startup communities in the world, a marketplace of ideas and discussion, and a home to entrepreneurs, visionaries, tech gurus, investors, and others who are working in or just interested in the startup arena. We’re in our second season of Startup Competition, and your involvement could help decide who wins. So dive in, get the latest update and join the latest discussion. There are a lot of great contributors, startup founders and tech-savvy aficionados alike - people like yourself.

Our rules are pretty straightforward - act with respect to others in the community. Keep your posts to the appropriate boards (especially when you’re making a case for how awesome your picks are). Keep your posts positive and polite - this means no personal attacks, trolling, spamming etc. Violation of the rules will mean a warning, suspension, or possibly an outright ban. We’re all here to be involved in a premiere Startup competition - to be in on the latest developments, learn, make some points ourselves, and make connections. Keeping the conversation polite will make it work. Don’t mistake it, there will likely be some fierce debates - but let’s make those about the startups and the market, not the individuals.

So from the team at Startup Icon, thanks for coming by to check us out! We are sure you'll find that this season is going to be an exciting and valuable one. And as always, please feel free to give us your feedback, so that we can do everything possible to make your involvement with Startup Icon a rewarding one.

I think of this as "others who are working in or fascinated with the startup arena." No, even that is not enough glory for our Forum Members!

Everybody here is a star...the startups are stars, of course. Gladiators ready to step into the arena and slay the monsters of established business norms, restrictions, and limitations. Yet the other stars are here, too: the star who hold the key to the startups' success is the fan/audience/player!

I would like the Startup/Audience relationship here to be one similar to the Speaker/Fan relationship at a Sci-Fi or Anime convention. A real respect-based, mutually supportive ...I'm looking for a noun to end the sentence... "courtship?"

No...

Anyone?

I just heard about startupicon.tv at the Hacker Dojo in person. My name is Balazs Schreil. My background is in Human-Computer Interaction. I started my own company, named False Front Interactive, for which I designed 9 web applications. I am trying to get funded.

Welcome Balazs and good luck! Have you created a profile for your Startup yet? And can you tell us a bit about the applications you've created (and don't be shy). 8-)

My name is David Casey and I have spoken to Andrew over the months about this venture at Hacker Dojo. I look forward to contributing to this forum.
