Bootup Labs opens January 2010 Cohort

Posted by Rob Lewis

Earlier today Vancouver's Bootup Labs opened up applications for their January 2010 cohort, so if you're starting-up - get your application in.

What are we looking for? Well, our four “big bucket” categories are consumer Internet, mobile, gaming, and enterprise Internet. We want to work with digital media startup teams that want to hucker down and spend 8 months growing their business, either getting ready for further investment or growing their “cash engine” to a profitable state.

Victoria Revay and Warren Frey caught up with Bootup Labs' Boris Mann at the last Launch Party Vancouver event and he did a little pitch of his own.
