On the heels of recently accepting 154 startups to participate in Start-Up Chile’s second round, we’re excited to announce that a new application process will be opening in order to continue searching for the world’s best and brightest entrepreneurs.
Open to receive applications for only three weeks, the third and final Start-Up Chile application process of 2011 will open on October 12th and will remain open until October 27th, during which time we’ll be seeking up to 110 startups to participate in the third round of the world renowned program.
Similar to the previous application rounds, criteria the applicants will be judged on include:
- quality of talent and commitment of the founding team members,
- international market potential of the project, and
- value of the applicant’s affiliated networks that will be injected into the Chilean entrepreneurship ecosystem.
Judges determining the scoring of said criteria will be industry experts, venture capitalists, and entrepreneurs with strong backgrounds in executing and advising startups. The program is open to startups from all nationalities who will each be judged equally under the same criteria. Applications must be submitted in English via the Start-Up Chile website, along with your current passport, CV, and Letter of Recommendation demonstrating your networks and dedication.
We are currently working on updating the program’s legal Terms and Conditions and application guidelines which will be published on Tuesday, October 11th. If you have general questions regarding the program, please consult our FAQ, visit this participant’s post, or as a last result, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
