Are you on the fence as to whether you should try to promote your company? Get off it! The time is now!
If you're a seed-stage startup, or you know a seed-stage startups that's raised under $2 million -- that means any startup with a concept/product to one that's already getting traction -- then you should try to make it on stage at Splash SF this October 2.
Even if you're not fundraising at the moment, it's still good to make connections or re-connections in the VC community. If you're a consumer Internet or enterprise software company, t's a good time to get feedback and maybe even secure new customers.
It's free to apply. There's nothing like free promotion. Apply here!
The Splash review process is simple. There are two rounds before you get on stage. The first round is a popular voting round, which consists of startups showing their ability to market themselves. But it's not only the number of votes they get, but who's voting. Moreover, Vator applies a weighting system that gives certain companies bonus points. After that round, the top 18 move into the judges' round. That's where we have a group of distinguished angels, venture capitalists, and entrepreneurs help us find the top 10.
The winner gets sit-down meetings with August Capital, Freestyle Capital, Javelin Venture Partners, Khosla Ventures and Shasta Ventures. They'll also win other prizes, like two-hour accounting consultations from Grant Thornton, $24,000 worth of services, courtesy Rackspace; free services from Backops, a couple bottles of wine, courtesy Bread & Butter, and an Apple iPad Mini, to name a few.
