Apply For A #BoS2018 Scholarship

A little known fact about the Business of Software Conference is that every year a group of people attend BoS for less than $20. 

And you could be one of them this year.

The BoS Scholarship Scheme helps deserving members of the Software Community attend the conference for a nominal fee. We're under no illusions that tickets to BoS are expensive, and that there are reasons people can't afford tickets right now. Maybe you're running an early stage startup, or you're fresh out of college, or there's just not enough room in your budget to pay for both a hotel room and conference tickets.

If you want to find out more about getting a Scholar's ticket yourself, or to recommend to a friend, click below to find out more. Applications close soon - don't miss out.
