TechStars

In 2011, TechStars commited to doubling the size of the TechStars Network of affiliated start-up accelerators from 25 to 50 by the end of 2013, which will contribute toward the acceleration of more than 500 companies annually. Start-up accelerators are short-term mentorship programs that provide workspace, seed capital, and extensive skill-building to early stage start-ups to help them rapidly shore up and scale their businesses. TechStars, an accelerator based in Boulder, Boston, Seattle, and New York, launched the TechStars Network in early 2011 to share knowledge and coordinate efforts with other start-up accelerators in the United States and overseas. In addition to growing the Network, TechStars will launch Star Power Partners, providing $100,000 of new funding to approximately 50 TechStars start-ups annually over the next three years.
