How to get in to 500 startups: Privy's first hand account

I was excited when Ricky Ribeiro of Biztech Magazine reached out and asked me to write a piece on 500 Startups. Accelerators are a hot topic these days, so I thought I'd focus the piece on the following:


  1. How we got into the 500 Startups Accelerator
  2. Advice for teams going through the accelerator
  3. How to prepare for demo days
  4. Life after the 500 Startups program
