Business of Software Conference USA Online is happening on 21-23 September.
The brightest software entrepreneurs from across the world will be meeting online to meet with their peers, discuss the big issues around running a software business, and participate in interactive sessions led by experts including April Dunford, Bob Moesta, Alex Osterwalder, and many more.
Every year at Business of Software Conference, the generosity of our supporters allows us to offer full conference tickets to deserving entrepreneurs and leaders who otherwise wouldn’t be able to attend the event.
This year is no different – a huge thanks to our supporters:
As supporters, have contributed generously to the scholarship program so that others can attend BoS Conference USA Online without charge.
This year, scholars will get a full pass for the entire conference, free of charge.
You get access to:
It’s as simple as that. We don’t single you out as a scholar or, god forbid, a ‘non-paying attendee’ – you’re a BoS Conference attendee, just like everybody else.
You just need to make sure you have a laptop with a webcam and are available from 8:30am-4pm ET on 21 & 22 September, and 8:30am-1pm ET on 23 September.
Am I eligible to apply for a scholarship?
BoS Scholarships are for software entrepreneurs, emerging leaders, smart people starting out on their entrepreneurial journey, who otherwise wouldn’t be able to attend the event.
We’re especially keen to encourage applications from:
- Underrepresented groups in the software community. (We’re also working with a number of organisations directly to aid this aim).
- People having a tough year due to a change in circumstances.
- People who are starting out and want to supercharge their knowledge, their experience, their network of great people.
- People who are working to make the world a better place.
We want to bring you into and keep you in the community. We want to help you if we possibly can.
Is it worth applying for a scholarship?
We think so – but don’t take our word for it. Here’s what some previous scholars have to say:
“BoS is more than just a conference. It is a community of people from all over the world who are committed to building great software businesses. Whilst not meaning to simply repeat your own marketing spiel, BoS really did feel like a large group of friends who welcomed new members and openly shared their knowledge. Buoyed by the optimism of this event, I will go back home and enact the learnings!” Henry Jinman Read more about Henry’s experience at BoS here.
“I have made so many great connections from this event that can assist Code 4000 in helping in many more people in an even more effective way”. Ashley Fulcher, Code 4000
“The two most important days for our startup in 2015 were spent at Business of Software (BoS). Don’t count the things you do. Do the things that count. If you don’t have time to go to this conference, make time. Do what counts.” Angela Hood, ThisWayGlobal

Priority is always given to people who are building things, making things, doing things. Scholarships are not a way for someone to attend the event so they can sell their services.
We’ll be in touch within two working days to let you know if your application has been successful so don’t delay.
