Making our short list and checking it twice

The two-week judging period is now over, giving our frail and harried judges a week to rest before our interviews next Wednesday, and leaving us with 40 stellar teams for our next round.

We’ve notified everyone who applied, so if you haven’t heard from us please get in touch.

Overall we heard several comments from the judges noting that the quality of the application pool had improved from last year – not to take anything away from those who applied in 2007, as it may be a sign of a rising startup ecosystem tide raising all boats.

We’ve also seen some reactions to our verdicts on Twitter which is to be expected. Cliché as it sounds, it really is hard to disappoint so many people in one fell swoop.

Thanks to everyone who applied. We hope to see many of you again next year.

UPDATE: I forgot to add, if you’d like feedback on your application just email us at – be sure to mention your team’s name.
