Why #CoRise Seed Prize?

One of the larger idea for #CoRise Seed Prize and all the things we do at eChai Ventures is the Collaboratively rising together.

We see a world where people just don't wait for themselves to be super successful and then think about supporting fellow entrepreneurs. One can certainly play a positive role in fellow entrepreneur's journey - if not thru monetary support but probably by being a early adopter, being the customer, being the partner and/or by being the evangelist.

The monetary contributions for #CoRise Seed Prize are the just beginning and greatest value for a wining startup will be like 100 entrepreneurs saying that - we'll always be there with you. And friends who are not part of that list can also certainly play a great role for some of the winning startups or other startups from the community.
