With March Madness just around the corner, we thought women entrepreneurs could get in on the action. TechStars is hosting a "bracket style" tournament to find the next big thing, picking 64 startups to face off in Startup Madness. In order to quality for the bracket, your startup must meet the following requirements:
- Haven't raised funding of $250,000 or more and haven't generated revenue of more than $250,000 in a single year.
- Have a live, usable public site or an accessible demo on their home page.
- Have not already been in the TechStars program - this is not for TechStars companies or alumni companies.
- Must be an internet, software, or hi-tech company.
Nominate your fellow female-founded startup! You can nominate a startup here or simply tweet as follows:
"Hey @TechStars, I nominate @ENTRANT for the @StartupMadness Tournament http://tsta.rs/sumadness"
@ENTRANT should of course be replaced by the company twitter handle. You can nominate your own company. We expect this to be competitive, so be sure to have your friends nominate your company too. The top 64 companies that are battle ready will be accepted into the bracket. Nominate your favorite female-founded startup now! Nominations due March 9, and the tournament starts March 14.
