Shotput Ventures 2010

We’re excited to start talking about Shotput Ventures 2010. After reviewing last year we decided to make a few tweaks for our next class of companies. Here are some of the changes:

  • Investing $6,000 per co-founder (like TechStars) instead of $5,000 per team and $5,000 per co-founder (like Y Combinator) due to our great low cost of living
  • Having the max number of co-founders per team be three instead of four as we found the four person teams weren’t as productive
  • Smaller program with 5 – 6 companies so that we can devote more attention to each team
  • Formal partnership with the ATDC (more info to come soon)
  • Published company ideas and markets we’re interested in

Take a look at our program timeline, FAQ, and apply online once we open up applications.
