TechStars Dominates Startup Accelerator Ranking
A new ranking of startup accelerators in the U.S., by publication Tech Cocktail, has ranked TechStars' various programs as tops among the dozens of programs now launching nationwide. TechStars dominated the list of the top startup accelerators, ranking number 2 with its Boulder program, 7 with its New York Program, 8 for its Boston Program, and 12th for its Seattle program. Tech Cocktail said the top accelerators were ranked by Aziz Gilani (DFJ Mercury) and MBA-candidate Kristen Kamath at Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University under the guidance of Professor Yael Hochberg of Kellogg and the National Bureau of Economic Research.
