As you probably heard, the deadline to apply to Start-Up Chile is set up for July 10th. Folks keep publishing about it, which we appreciate because we want as many applicants as possible! Suppers have been writing about their experiences so others consider applying to the program. We really enjoy reading what they have to say: there´s no one better than a supper to help you learn more about the program. Also, reading them allows the SUP team to see what is being done properly and what should be handled better. Antti Virolainen of Sharetribe wrote about how and why to apply to Start-Up Chile HERE at Aaltoes.com (July 1st).
Beatriz Cardona, from Tripku, also spent some time writing about Start-Up Chile for all the gals that might be thinking of applying. Her blog post at Ellas 2.0 goes through “9 reasons to apply to Start-Up Chile” and you can learn more about them HERE (July 9th)
