TechStars Seattle 2013 Applications Are Now Open

Hi, I’m Andy Sack. I’ve had the pleasure of being the Managing Director of TechStars Seattle for the past 3 years, and I’m excited to announce that we have opened applications for our 4th program here in Seattle!

Top 4 reasons you should apply to TechStars Seattle:

1. You’ll be mentored by the best and your network will explode.Seattle’s startup community is a big community, with a strong northwest frontier spirit. You’ll be instantly connected with Seattle’s high quality mentors, investors, and resources. Get ready to be surrounded by like-minded, helpful Seattleites everywhere you go!

2. Your company will accelerate.  A wasted year in the technology space can make you out dated and miss your market window, why would you delay?

3. You’ll be in the center of the Seattle tech scene. There’s no question that the tech community in Seattle is expanding at a rapid rate, you’ll be in the middle of it all with our office located in South Lake Union surrounded by Amazon, Microsoft and tons of amazing startups.

4. Seattle is beautiful. Yea, you might hear people complain about the rain, but not to worry since TechStars Seattle takes place during our best months. Seattle is surrounded by amazing day hikes, camping trips, kayaking, basically any outdoor activity you could ever imagine is here!  And yes — you will see the sun too.

So if Seattle sounds like a place you want to spend 3 months working on your startup then I’d like to invite you and your co-founders to apply to the Seattle program, and give your startup an unfair advantage. Applications for TechStars Seattle are open. Early application deadline is May 3rd and final deadline is May 31st.
