< 12 Hours to Apply to TechStars

We are in the final stretch for TechStars applications. Less than twelve hours remain until the deadline (at 23:59:59 ET tonight).

I’ve heard lots of folks make lots of excuses as to why they haven’t applied yet. Most of the reasons are crud.

Here’s the thing. The application is dead-simple. You can put a decent one together in 15 minutes if that’s all the time you’ve got. Nobody gets selected ‘cuz of their application – they get selected because of what comes after the application:  demos, emails, phone calls, progress, meetings, et. al.

What’s particularly cool about submitting an application is that it infinitely increases your chances of getting in!!!

Over the last three years, we’ve seen well into four figures of applications. Yours won’t likely be the best one we’ve seen and neither will it likely be the worst. We’ve selected all sorts of weird companies with weird ideas that have done stellarly. Your start-up though just might be the one we think can knock the ball out of the park this time! But we won’t know unless you apply.

In the words of Nike, just do it!   http://www.techstars.org/apply/
