Yesterday, I received the payments of my first two sponsorships on the same day for incubatorlist.com and I'm very excited to share this milestone with all of you!
Actually, both these sponsors made the sponsorship offer a while ago, but I couldn't concentrate on the product for a while due to the depressive mood caused by Coronavirus and self-isolation (thanks for their patience). But recently, I pulled myself together and now I'm back on track! Now I realize a maker's remedy is always, to make!
Many people complained about the colors of incubatorlist.com so far, but I was on the positive side and didn't want to change it completely. But the previous design was too sharp, having many borders, thick lines and an eye-tiring font, I decided to update the design with minor tweaks. Hope it is better!
I created a Twitter account that will automatically post reminders before the deadlines of each program in incubatorlist.com:
For example, applications for several MassChallenge programs, including Boston Accelerator, are closing in 3 days. Hurry up to apply!
PS. This Twitter account will not be limited only to reminders. I will also share the most recent news and articles about startup programs.
I've added more than 80 startup programs to incubatorlist.com and 8 other key information about all the programs as requested, including:
By tomorrow, I will be adding a filtering based on key information in addition to 100+ new programs.
Ready or not, a new era has unfortunately begun. This is also valid for startup programs. Most of them are planning to go remote for their next cohorts, like YC. Most probably, some of them will adopt remote permanently.
There were already remote programs in incubatorlist.com, but I am trying to expand the list as much as possible. That's why, I would be grateful if you recommend any remote program. Please feel free to contribute to this list!
Here you can find these 13 remote startup programs I've collected so far:
PS. If your startup is targeting any pandemic related problem, don't forget to apply to Fight the Virus Accelerator as the deadline is April 3rd!
I've added a very simple review & rating module to the program pages in incubatorlist.com using Disqus. I am planning to collect feedbacks, reviews, and ratings from anyone who has attended an accelerator & incubator before. Please feel free to contribute with your valuable reviews!
Program submission is also available to use, where you can add programs if they are not on the list. Many of you have submitted more than 50+ programs so far, that's why I am grateful to all of you guys!
Today I will be adding 70 programs more! (now we have 260+ programs). Next for this week:
I've collected more than 230+ incubator and accelerator programs as a spreadsheet since I applied to many of those with my other project, Episolo.
It was not easy to find the most suitable programs. All the resources on the web were outdated. And I didn't want to miss application deadlines, so I brought all the programs I've bookmarked together into a spreadsheet, then a website as a curated directory: incubatorlist.com.
I thought it could be useful for other makers as well. Hope you like it!
I've curated a big directory of accelerator & incubator programs recently as I've applied to many of those with my startup - Episolo.com. I hope any maker can benefit from this resource!
