What we're about

We welcome any and all bad idea's. We are the Silicon Valley location of BIS.

Have you ever had a startup idea you knew would be the next million dollar iPO? I know you did if you grew up in Silicon Valley. Was it only your loved ones who thought it was a brilliant idea?

Now is your chance to share that brilliant bad idea.

At BIS (Bad Idea Startup) it's our business to present bad ideas. At the end of each meeting we will award the worst, most absurd, hilarious and useless startup idea, as well as the idea that just might not belong here, but should start look for funding.

We invite everybody to join us and present their brilliantly bad ideas. No reason to hesitate since no one will be stealing your brilliantly bad idea.
