TechStars Boulder Rolls Out Newest Class
TechStars, the startup accelerator in Boulder which has helped to define the entire startup accelerator segment with its intense, three month long mentoring, launch, and demo days, just unveiled the results of its latest program yesterday in Boulder. The latest class included: DealAngel (hotel pricing and search); RollSale (sell your used car); 27Perry (online consignment marketplace); MobiPlug (home automation); SalesLoft (sales inteligence and alerts); Verbalize It (language translation); Ubooly (smartphone connected toys); Roximextry (location-based deals for your auto); Digital Ocean (cloud hosting); Birdbox (photo and video organization); and PivotDesk (office sharing marketplace). The next step for the startups, in most cases, is convincing venture or other investors to back their continued growth. TechStars' graduates have been among the most successful, venture backed companies in the region, and have dominated venture funding and investment activity in the region in the last few years.
