Adopt a Startup Competition

As most of you know, Quick Left is very much embedded in the startup community. We understand the challenges entrepreneurs experience with regard to technological innovation, fundraising, expediting product launches, and hiring exceptional technical talent. Having worked with Techstars grads and Foundry Group-backed startups as well as established companies like Ping Identity, Red Robin and Photobucket, we decided it would be nice to give back to the startup community which has provided the support for us to grow and expand our offices, tech talent, and offerings.

Enter the Adopt a Startup competition hosted by Quick Left. This accelerator-esque startup competition offers pre-Series A companies the chance to apply to win a month ($64,000 value) of custom software development with a pair of our expert full-stack developers in exchange for value equivalent convertible notes. We’re accepting applications now through December 15 for work to begin January 5th.

Know of someone needing to build an MVP to secure that Series A or are you that person yourself? Then share our application below:


Criteria for Adopt a Startup competition: Pre-series A funding and a technology company in the web or mobile application space. Must be in the Rocky Mountain Region (Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins, etc.) or Pacific Northwest (Portland, Seattle, etc).

What if you’ve already secured your Series A round, but are still needing development help on a startup budget? Don’t fret! You can still give us a shout to see if we can help you accomplish your next build. We’re offering new packages for web and mobile application technology companies that are in the startup phase (0-3 years).

We’re grateful for the support of our startup ecosystem in Boulder, Denver, Portland, San Francisco and beyond. And we’re ecstatic to give back in ways beyond event sponsorship and mentorship. We’d appreciate your sharing this application with VCs, Angels, your startup friends, and community so we can continue to grow this network by making software products that have impact on the world and change the way we do business.
