Good morning Founders!
You might have heard that 500 Startups recently announced a public application process. This is the first time we’re accepting applications for all companies that want to join our accelerator. In the last batch of the 500 Startups Accelerator, we had four great companies from India. The highest number from any country outside of the US. I’m hoping India can be represented just as well in the upcoming batch which starts in April 2013.
If you’re doing something exciting in education, jobs/employment, travel and you’re looking at markets in India or globally then you may want to put in your application soon. We will consider all applications, however, companies with traction, strong teams, past successes, and even a few referrals from 500 mentors and/or other 500 founders will go a long way.
- Education Put in your application by 13th of February 2013
- Jobs/employment by 14th of February 2013
- Travel by 15th of February 2013
- Others by 16th February 2013
By the 20th of February, I will start emailing interesting startups with dates and times to meet Dave and I in Bangalore, Mumbai and Delhi/NCR. If you have been thinking about how you can be a part of the 500 Startups family, this is your chance.
