If you didn’t catch the recent TechCrunch post on Y Combinator’s decision to sync its application deadlines with other seed accelerator programs, beyond the decision, there was one other key bit of information at the tail end of the post:
This session”s application includes one other notable change: startups are being encouraged to submit their applications as early as possible. Before now, half of all applications have been submitted in the last two days before the deadline as founders work to polish their applications. This time, the YC team will be reviewing applications earlier and interacting with founders before the deadline, so it”s in your best interest to apply as early as possible.
Sound like the “Begin a Dialogue” advice from my seed fund application advice post? Yep… Get cranking on those applications!
