Our next batch starts soon…
*These days may be slightly tweaked as things progress. That being said, this is a fairly accurate schedule.
*Please don’t let the inability to make one-or-two of the followings days due to travel, or something along those lines, prevent you from applying. We understand you’re humans, and thus our side of the table needs to be flexible. We greatly prefer that you make these dates happen, but if you can’t – at least reach out and ask. We will do our best to accommodate.
Final day to apply via application page (1-minute process)- March 1st, 2017
Sometime between late November and December 3rd, we’ll reach out to schedule a 30-minute meeting to discuss your opportunity. You will not receive any notice that we received your application; and you will not receive early feedback. As much as we’d like to do these things, we’re time and resource constrained due to the radical demand and attention we provide to our current entrepreneurs. Because we can’t get to all of these requests, we will get to none of them.
If you’ve applied to Tulsa BetaBlox, your first 30 minute interview will be on either March 9th, 10th, or 11th 6th. If you’ve applied to Kansas City BetaBlox, your first 30 minute interview will be on either March 13th, 14th, or 15th. Both cities will have a combination of late afternoon and early evening time slots to accommodate people that still have other full-time jobs. It is greatly preferred we hit these dates, but if you can’t we’ll shoot for a phone call. Roughly 40% of the people that go through this step will be invited to the final interview. Put the final interview date in your calendar NOW. We move fast and require your flexibility on this date for this to happen smoothly.
Final interviews (pitch to BetaBlox investors, attorneys, alumni, etc. – roughly 5 people). This will only take 30 minutes. Remember, put this date in your calendar now. Exceptions will be made for people who can’t make this date, but only if we’re told at the time of your first meeting. The finals for Tulsa applicants will take place on Saturday, March 18th; the finals for Kansas City applicants will take place on either March 22nd or 23rd.
Notification of acceptance for Tulsa applicants – Monday, March 20th
Notification of acceptance for Kansas City applicants – Monday, March 27th
The contract phase will last for approximately two weeks, starting from the time of your acceptance. Contracts will need to have been signed and turned in before, or on the day of, bootcamp. Please let this be a friendly reminder that we are not a school, government, or non-profit. We are angel investors, and capitalists. It’s because of those last two sentences that we strongly believe we can add more value to your company than anyone in Kansas City or Tulsa. If you make it to this step, a contract will need to be signed that grants BetaBlox a stake in your venture. If you’re not prepared to do this, please do not apply. If you have advisors telling you that sharing equity has risks, tell them that we’d be more than happy to take cash – but you’re not going to like the number. We do not ask for voting rights, or board seats, or anything else that forces you to make particular decisions. This is your company, and we trust you with the power. This type of compensation is what motivates us to add the most value to your venture. This also means that if you fail, we make nothing; if you succeed, we succeed with you.
Start of Tulsa program – April 1st
Start of Kansas City program – April 8th
