Is there a site where we can register our newly developed MVP?

We just launched adaily fantasy sportswebsite last month. We didn't setup the legalities yet as we wanted to see it's market first also we are targeting to get 100 subscribers before we pitch to investors. The reason I asked if there are sites where we can post our MVP is to get advice from people who has knowledge in starting up a daily fantasy sports business.

Hi Julius,

I work with many startups and am also a fantasy sports player for 30 years. I admit to not playing daily games personally, but I understand how they work. If I can be helpful, let me know.

You put yourself in great peril by not taking care of the "legalities" first. Protect yourself from legal liabilities, AND get maximum protection for any intellectual property you might have. By the way, no investor will put up money for an enterprise that isn't a legal entity and hasn't paid attention to IP matters. Sent from my iPhone

Congratulations with the successful launch, Julius.
In fact, I'm fully supporting Martin - IP is matter.
Regarding the advice:https://www.f6s.com/programs - here you can find suitable for you and your industry acceleration session, which may potentially help you.

Martin: it's very true.
Idea costs nothing, presentation costs nothing, MVP or demo - it's already something, but if it is not protected - with a very high probability it can be just a wasting of time and efforts.

I'm about 1 year in SF Bay Area, but I've already seen too many different teams with the same or similar business ideas. However, they trust in their uniqueness and final success.

And that's great! They have to be inspired by what they are doing.Just they need someone, perhaps accelerator, to be educated and avoid common mistakes made by others. That's the reason, why I've shared link to different acceleration programs.

I am in Boston area. But we have similar outlooks. I am no longer surprised by the number of people who fail to protect what they have. Keep up the good work. Sent from my iPhone

Ok, I will break from the crowd here on the IP issue, while very important. (but can be expensive to get, enforce and follow-up on legally - and also IP is only required for investment by VC only if what you have is truely groundbreaking they are sure it cant be challenged as obvious at the time of filing) - also a VC is more interested in revenue, market size, go-to market and proof points - which means you have to let people use your startups technology.

Not only that, until you see there is value in the technology and a real market/product fit is it sensible spending a lot of money on IP protection? only a question you can answer - but talk with an IP lawyer as they can give yo idea of costs, issues, times, re-submission costs (most IP applications are submitted 2-5 times.)



To get back to your question, there are many places a startup can push an MVP - if a techno;logy startup try producthunt.com you need someone to post for you that is able to do so. Startupli.st/betali.st, earlibird, killer startups and quite a few others few others - google where can I promote my startup for free - there are a few places, but the above should get you a good 100-500 users pretty quick if you have a compelling story and landing page.

If you are afraid of others copying you, don't its down to execution at the end of the day and every team executes differently.

But if still a concern, look for users in your specific market segment and not the technology markets(startup eco-system)

Good luck,
