How do I know someone won't steal my idea?

Being open and sharing ideas is an essential part of Dynastart. If your idea is good, then other people might be interested in it.

You don't need to publish your invention or the way you are creating solution. You need to show problem, how your solution brings value and solves the problem and then convince that you can make it.
