Capital Factory is a seed stage mentoring program for startups that provides a small amount of seed capital and weekly mentoring sessions by entrepreneurs who have founded successful companies. Startup companies apply to participate in our 10 week summer program intended to get a startup pointed in the right direction with a clear path to profitability and growth. This year the program runs from May 22nd to August 7th. At the end of the program we'll be hosting Demo Day and streaming it live over the Internet.
Applications are due by 11:59pm PT on April 3, 2009
We have extended the deadline by one week in order to give some companies more time to work on their application.
We will select 10 finalists and then the winning companies in mid-April.
