I’ve been a longtime supporter of TechStars, the #1 startup accelerator in the world. I’m a mentor to the teams, investor in the program and we’ve funded five companies that have completed the Bolder program. I believe with all my heart that the companies that graduate from Techstars have a significant competitive advantage over their competitors, not just from what they learn in the program, but the lifetime relationships they build with the mentor network and the founders of the other companies.
This summer marks their sixth season and applications are currently open! However, it takes time to for the TechStars team to get to know you, so the earlier you apply, the greater your liklihood of getting in. Deadlines are 2/26 for early application consideration or 3/16 for final application deadline. You can apply here.
