Quotes from Summer@Highland applications
It’s that time of year again when I find myself pouring over hundreds of applications to our Summer@Highland program. Summer@Highland is our summer accelerator program for university-affiliated entrepreneurs and is responsible for helping awesome companies like Wildfire, Gemvara, Cloudflare, and Tivli get up and running back in the day.
I tweeted a few of my favorite quotes from these apps over the last few days, but when TimeHop showed me some of my tweets about the applications from a year ago, I decided it was time to write a post compiling a few of my favorites.

And closing with my favorite, which came not from an application, but a letter of reference from a CEO:
