Techstars Launches New Corporate Program, Techstars++

Boulder-based startup accelerator operator Techstars is deepening its ties with corporate partners, saying this morning that it has launched a new program called Techstars++. The program will let companies from across Techstars work with corporate partners, by spending time on site and working closely with those partners. The startup accelerator said its first partner in the effort is the Mayo Clinic, which will let healthcare-oritned companies graduating out of Techstars spend two weeks at the Mayo Clinic, exploring business development opportunities. Techstars said the program will include a full time, Techstars Program Director working directly at the site of each of those corporate partners to enable the program.
