Good news – The Startup Factory application deadline is less than 2 weeks away, January 19th to be exact.

Bad news – You are going to compete with some pretty good peers.

I have written and spoken many times about the decision to apply to a program like ours.  If you are not sure you are ready – you are right.  You are not ready.  Give up now.  Being a startup founder is a massive leap where you have to think you are a bad-ass.  If you don’t believe it, why should we?

So, like Chicago politics (vote early and vote often), apply and sell us on why you are a bad-ass.

Got some questions?  We will be holding a conference call event next week where we answer your questions (posted via Twitter) for all to hear.  Its a good time as well.

So all you startups ready to compete for one of our 6 slots – bring it on!
