Made For Builders

If builder energy runs through your veins, this program is for you and hundreds of builders on that same wavelength — no bullshit, no waste of time, no strings attached.

100% Free, On Your Terms.

We made this program a no-brainer for every builder. It costs nothing. It's fully online. Have a day job? No problem, it works for you too. All you need is a few hours per week and a lot of builder energy to get shit done.

Build Over Buzz

No hand holding, we’re not getting in your way. It's 4 weeks to build and launch your project, and that's all that matters. Along the way, keep sharing your progress, getting feedback from real users, and helping other builders do the same.

Better Together

Trust us, we know building something new isn’t easy. Backdrop Build is all about giving you what you need to make it happen — support from the Build network, perks and credits from our amazing partners, and an awesome group of fellow builders so you don’t have to do it alone.

$50,000+ in Grants

Up to 50 projects get selected as finalists and receive a huge boost to continue building, including support and more than $50,000 in grants from our partners.
