10 days left to apply for Startup Row

Monday, February 18, 2013
Back in December we announced the opening of applications for inclusion in our Startup Row event in the Expo Hall at PyCon. It's a great chance for your Python-using startup company to get some exposure and meet the community.

We're accepting applications to the event through February 28th. The original blog post incorrectly said February 10th, and the actual application said February 29th, which doesn't exist this year. Sorry for any confusion on that.


Here are the rules:
  • Seed stage only. For purposes of startup row, that means less than $350K in outside funding or, if self-funded, less than 18 months old.
  • You must use Python somewhere in your startup. Backend, frontend, testing, wherever.
  • No repeats. If you were on startup row last year, your startup is not eligible. We want to give a chance to as many startups as possible.
  • If you are accepted, you must guarantee your attendance for at least the Expo Hall hours on your appointed day. We will work with you as to which day is better for you.
Here are the selection criteria:
  • Interesting technology. Are you doing something hard or unique? Tell us about it.
  • Traction and reach. Are you affecting a lot of people? How?
  • Concept. Are you changing the world? Disrupting an industry? Solving a problem? Sometimes you see what a company is doing and your jaw drops. If that is your startup, we want to hear from you.

It seems really interesting and also a great opportunity for young entrepreneurs up for grabs as the process of seed funding is a bit complicated.
