In May we (Startup Grind) got a request from Y Combinator and 500 Startups to submit startups/companies for their summer incubator applications. We had only a few days notice but we received referrals for 50 companies.
Out of those about 15-met the criteria (50% technical founding teams/impressive people, huge market, great technology and/or great traction).
Out of those we sent 7.
Of the 7, one company got into YC and two got into 500 Startups.
There is a new opportunity with TechStars joining as well.
Submit your startup for Fall 2015 Incubator at YC, 500 Startups, TechStars, in the USA!
What is the criteria for a submission? Team, Market, Tech, Traction
- Great team – 50% technical, impressive people (smart, industry expert).
- Big market – taking on multi-billion incumbents.
- Great tech – working demo, product in hand, ideally users.
- Great traction – $1MM in revenue trumps every other answer. Market proof is the best proof.
If you are ready to join an incubator in the USA, if you meet the above criteria, fill in the form below with some basic info about you and your company, so I can give you the application form.
We (Startup Grind) will review and submit to YCombinator, 500 Startups and TechStars. Deadline: August 25
All the best,
