Everything that happens at SproutCamp is technically in the public domain. However, it is extremely unlikely that an idea will get stolen, and we are firm believers that ideas aren’t worth anything unless you execute on them. In addition, your idea will probably change dramatically over time (actually within the first two weeks of SproutCamp beginning, it probably will). The real value is in your ability to execute properly, which is something very few people currently get right.
