Should I tell people about my startup idea?

Absolutely! As a matter of fact, we highly recommend it.

So many potential entrepreneurs with amazing ideas are afraid to share them. They somehow think that their idea may be stolen, they make others sign Non-Disclosure-Agreements before sharing their idea. This is silly, and really a tell-tell sign that you are just entering into startupland. Telling people of your idea is the only way to 1) validate that the idea is viable 2) spread awareness of your startup 3) get the resources you need to help you grow.

Expert Tip: Do not give away your “secret sauce” when sharing your startup idea. Talk about the human benefits of your startup idea, not the details in how it works behind the scenes.
