Our Rules

Kregzo is a community supported platform aimed to bring your ideas to business.

We welcome and support ideas from a variety of categories: Smart City, Healthcare, FinTech, FashionTech, Technology, etc. Here are basic regulations every idea / business must follow:

  1. Ideas must create something to share with others.
    Kregzo can be used to create all sorts of ideas: physical products, services. But every idea needs a plan for execution by creating something marvelous and sharing it with the world. Also at some point the creator of the idea should be able to say: “Here’s what we created. Enjoy!”
  2. Ideas / Business must be honest and clearly presented.
    Our community is solely built on trust and communication. Any idea / business can’t mislead people or mispresent facts, and creators should be candid about what they plan to accomplish. When an idea involves manufacturing and distributing something, a physical product, we require creators to showcase actual prototype to followers of what they are making, and we prohibit photorealistic renderings.
  3. Ideas / Business can’t fundraise for charity.
    While we encourage and open our services to all nonprofit social ideas to launch their businesses successfully. We prohibit ideas to raise funds to donate to a charity or for a cause. (in future) Funds raised on Kregzo must go towards facilitating the idea / business outlined by the creator on his startup page.
  4. Business can’t involve prohibited items.
    We do not allow any of these things.
    We prohibit creators to offer these items as rewards / incentives to other users.
  • Any item claiming to cure, treat, or prevent an illness or condition (whether via a device, app, book, nutritional supplement, or other means).
  • Contests, coupons, gambling, and raffles.
  • Energy food and drinks.
  • Offensive materials. (e.g., hate speech, encouraging violence against others, etc.)
  • Offering a genetically modified organism as a reward.
  • Live animals. Projects cannot include live animals as a reward.
  • Offering alcohol as a reward.
  • Offering financial, money-processing, or credit services; financial intermediaries or cash-equivalent instruments; travel services (e.g., vacation packages); phone services (e.g., prepaid phone services, 900 numbers); and business marketing services.
  • Political fundraising.
  • Pornographic material.
  • Projects that share things that already exist, or repackage a previously-created product, without adding anything new or aiming to iterate on the idea in any way.
  • Resale. All rewards must have been produced or designed by the project or one of its creators — no reselling things from elsewhere.
  • Drugs, nicotine, tobacco, vaporizers and related paraphernalia.
  • Weapons, replicas of weapons, and weapon accessories.

If your project involves something illegal, heavily regulated, or potentially dangerous for users and it is not on this list, please contact us before starting your project.

These rules don’t cover every possible use of Kregzo, but they explain our purpose and perspective.
