TechStars Cloud Deadline is Sunday

TechStars Cloud deadline to apply looms.
You’ve got until midnight on Sunday to submit your application for the second annual program, which will take place beginning in January on the 10th floor of the Weston Centre in downtown San Antonio at Geekdom.
On Saturday, applicants will gather at Geekdom on the 10th floor for TechStars for a Day. The event is by invitation, which is extended to teams that submit an early application to the TechStars Cloud program.
The one-day mini-camp allows those applying to meet TechStars mentors, alumni and Jason Seats, the managing director of the TechStars Cloud program.
During the event, Dirk Elmendorf, founder of Rackspace, ServerBeach and Trucking Office, will give a talk about his experiences as a technology entrepreneur.
George Kardis with Softlayer will talk about four survival tips every early stage startup should know and Mike Troy, founder of FlashScan3D and Clinimetrix, will discuss non-dilutive financing.
Other talks will cover business models, venture capital and public relations and marketing.
A panel of alumni from the last TechStars Cloud program will answer questions from applicants in the afternoon. Then they’ll get a chance to meet with mentors and ask more questions.
At 5 p.m., San Antonio New Tech Meetup will feature three presentations on interesting things being built in San Antonio. That meetup is open to the public, but you’ve got to sign up here.
All of the TechStar Cloud participants from the first class came from outside of Texas. But this next program may feature some local companies. TrueAbility, a technology skills testing company, is applying for the program. Here’s the company’s video.
