TechStars Application Deadline Is This Saturday

Mar 18, 2009
Category Techstars

If you have been thinking about applying to TechStars for either the Summer 2009 program in either Boulder or Boston, now is the time to do it as the application deadline is Saturday, March 21, 2009 at 11:59:59 PM MDT.

In my first company (Feld Technologies), when we set deadlines we started out with days of the week (e.g. Wednesday).  In the late 1980’s, this meant “sometime before Thursday morning when people start showing up at work.”  So – we tightened it up and put a date on it (e.g. Wednesday 3/18).  This was supposed to mean “by the end of the day” but inevitably meant 11:59:59 PM.  So – we started putting date and time stamps on deadlines.  I continue that practice to this day.

So – the deadline is Saturday, March 21, 2009 at 11:59:59 PM MDT.  It’ll take you about as long to apply as it took you to read this blog post (ok – maybe a little longer, but not much.)  What are you waiting for?
