The Techstars Boulder early application deadline is less than a week away – February 24th, 2011!  Applications are heating up, and we already have more applicants than we did last year.  So if you’re thinking about applying, but aren’t sure you’re going to make the early application deadline, here are a handful of reasons why you should consider getting it in early.

  • In order to be considered for Techstars for a Day, you need to get your apps in by Feb 24th.  What’s the big deal about TS4AD?  Well, David Cohen, Jason Mendelson, Paul Berberian, Howard Diamond, and other top mentors will be there.  You get an inside glimpse of what the program is like, along with the opportunity to meet us face-to-face so we can get a better sense of who you are.
  • If you’re not sure if Techstars is right for you, you can meet Techstars Alumni such as SendGridNext Big SoundEverlaterVacation Rental PartnerOrbotixKapost at TS4AD and ask their opinion.  If you don’t believe that Techstars can help your business because you’re too far along, or you’ve already raised capital, or you already have revenue – ask the teams that have gone through the program!  You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how the prototypical Techstars team has evolved into a range of companies from pre-revenue to funded and profitable.
  • I’m still fresh!  I haven’t been looking at apps for 6 straight weeks yet.  😉
  • You can edit and update your application anytime after you submit it, right up until the final deadline of March 16th.

Looking forward to seeing your application by February 24th!
