The newest Start-Up Chile period opens up June 25th. Startup Chile will select 100 startups to invite to Chile as part of generation 5. If this period is similar previous rounds, about 650 teams will apply.
Startup Chile is a great program, especially for entrepreneurs who are in the bootstrapping phase or already have developed a product but need more time to figure out the correct business model to apply.
My company, Entrustet, was part of the pilot phase of Start-Up Chile and arrived in Chile in November 2010. I blogged extensively about my experiences in the program and in Chile, along with advice on how to get selected for Start-Up Chile. I also wrote an ebook, Startup Chile 101, with everything you need to know about living and doing business in Chile.
I’ve written or reviewed 12 applications for Start-Up Chile teams and 9 have been selected for the program, including 3 of 4 in the last round. I can help you craft an application that emphasizes the criteria that the judges are looking for, correct your grammar into perfect English and give you the tips you need to have the best chance at getting selected.
If you need help with your application, please contact me. Editing, writing, review, advice. I charge a small flat fee to review and edit your application, plus a success fee if you are selected for the program after I’ve helped you.
