Colorado-based entrepreneur Brad Feld is opening his doors to local startups. This week, Feld and the Kauffman Foundation announced a contest for young companies that would benefit from having access to Google Fiber Internet access. The winners will get to live and work rent-free in the house that Feld owns at 4437 Cambridge in Kansas City, Kansas.

Feld, along with a panel of judges, will evaluate applicants based on their "innovative potential of their startups and their companies' ability to leverage Google Fiber." Up to five startups can win and will get to spend a year in the FiberHouse, which is in the same neighborhood as the Kansas City Startup Village.

The Feld FiberHouse Contest is taking applications until March 22. The winners might be a little cramped. According to Trulia, the house is only 944 square feet, with two bedrooms and one bathroom.

Applicants must be 18 or older. You can apply through the Kauffman Foundation's iStart website.
