  • Question

  • I had a business idea that I wanted to pursue that will require a website, I was seeking to do this is ASP.Net so I thought using BizSpark would be a good idea.  It seems you need a website explaining the business, but I was going to use BizSpark to get the hosting and start the business since I would get a discount on the hosting.  What should I do?

  • try open source. They won't let you in unless your product is already complete.

  • Do you have proof that they want a completed product before they let you in?

     

    Quite the paradox if that is so, can't build a house without the tools, but requires the house to get the tools.
