TechStars' Feld: More Programs, Cities Next Year
Boulder-based TechStars, the startup acceleration program, has some big plans for 2013, according to co-founder Brad Feld. Feld, in his blog, said that TechStars is planning more "powered by TechStars" program and additional cities next year, along with a number of other new things. Feld did not say where those additional programs will be located, however, the group's template for accelerators has been in high demand by entrepreneurs for its success in getting startups off the ground and funded. The latest program to be "powered by TechStars" is one in Portland, Oregon, being run by TechStars for Nike, to accelerate startups interested in buildling tools, services, and applications around Nike's Nike+ devices.
