NEW: Adding a Pair and a New Market to Adopt a Startup Program

If you haven't heard about our Adopt a Startup program yet from here, here or here, that's ok. Because there's been an addition (literally)! As most of you know, Quick Left is very much embedded in the startup community and upon launching our Adopt a Startup program, we honestly didn't know how it would be received.

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.
