Why apply early?

TechStars Boston 2011 early application deadline is in just a few days (January 13th!).  If you’re thinking of applying to Boston, or any of the TechStars programs, here are a few great reasons to apply by the early application deadline.

  • You can’t be considered for TechStars for a Day (TS4AD) unless to beat the early application deadline.
  • Five of the 11 teams in New York City attended TS4AD.  #justsayin
  • We’re not exhausted from looking at applications yet.
  • We’ll probably spend more time looking at your application.  Last year, Boulder received 25% of its applications in the last 6 hours.  With only a couple of days to get through them all, I’m sure I missed some gems because I couldn’t spend quality time on the application.
  • You can always update your application once you submit it.
  • Applying early gives your team the chance to prove it can execute.  Show us amazing progress from the time you apply to the application deadline.
