New TechStars Startup Accelerator Program

13 Sep

If  you’ve talked to me much at all about entrepreneurship, you’ve probably heard me mention startup accelerators such as TechStars and YCombinator. These programs take in only a handful of early-stage technology startup companies each year. They put the companies through a 2-3 month intensive mentoring program. At the end of the program, each of the companies have an opportunity to pitch a large group of investors at each programs’ “demo day”.

TechStars has announced they are starting a new program in San Antonio, TX that focuses on cloud-computing and infrastructure companies. So, if you have an idea along those lines, you should definitely check it out. A word of warning, TechStars invest heavily into the team that submits ideas, and not so much the idea itself. So make sure you apply with a creative, motivated and talented team.
