Over the past few weeks, we’ve interviewed close to a hundred startups. And the next few weeks will see us interview almost a hundred more.
With a maximum of 50 spots available for Boost – our early-stage startup growth program, co-hosted by WeTransfer – we can proudly say that the startups that will make the cut are bound to be brilliant.
All successful companies will be exhibiting at this year’s The Next Web USA on December 10 in New York, and 15 of them will have the chance to pitch to our entire American audience on-stage. But Boost is more than just a pitching competition, it’s a chance to connect your company with the resources that you need to grow.
So if you fancy joining the likes of Waze (acquired by Google), Rapportive (acquired by LinkedIn) and Shutl (acquired by eBay) on the road to success by getting involved yourself, applications will remain open for a few more weeks.
Take a look at the first-ten companies that you’ll be meeting at #TNWUSA 2014, as well as why you should check them out – in 140 characters or less.
