NOTE: There is some constant clicking during the interview. I felt Andrew's message needed to be shared, so I posted anyways.

Andrew J. Pulkrabek started 43 North earlier in 2014. It's a business plan competition that offers the biggest cash prize of any competition like it - $5 million total in cash prizes paid out to the winners.

Half way into the process, over 2000 teams have submitted ideas. Andrew's vision extends further than a business plan competition. He envisions a platform where teams and ideas can be judged based on their merit, rather than who you know.

Each applicant will be examined by three judges, experts in their field. Each one will get direct feedback to improve their pitch. Each one receives the opportunity to have their idea scrutinized.

Andrew shares his story, and why working with others is so important. He also shares a question that might just help you unleash your best work yet.

  • Support: If you're a subject matter expert, apply to be a judgeSend in your business idea to compete. If you'd like to help in another way, send Andrew an email at andrew@43north.org.
  • Success Habit: Look at risk, identify it, and mitigate it. Find out where the risk is. Some things we think are risks are not risks at all. Start by asking yourself, "if the world were my oyster, what would I create?"
