This question really belongs in a Netbeans forum for any serious answers. That being said I can still give my opinion.
I really doubt that you can improve it through software. Netbeans has to initialize and validate a complex module system during startup and the more modules that have to be started, to more time it will take. Recently OSGi support was added to Netbeans as an alternative to Netbeans' native module system; perhaps that can help, but again I doubt it.
Let me put it in another way: I was following the 10 example videos that demonstrate how to use the Netbeans platform, and even the small test applications that were developed took several seconds to boot. It is one of the arguments I have for myself to not adopt the platform myself - not that I care about the startup time of the end product, but because I already predict high annoyance levels during development.
