TechStars For A Day Deadline Approaches
The early application deadline for the next class at Boulder-based startup accelerator TechStars is approaching, with applications for the accelerator's TechStars for A Day program due by February 26th. The program brings prospective TechStars companies to the accelerator--and Boulder--for a day, to better get to know the team of mentors, existing companies, and learn more about the program. The final deadline is March 16th to apply. TechStars Boulder is the original program developed by David Cohen, Brad Feld, and others to help get startups funded and launched, and has been very successful in drawing startups, talent, and investment dollars into the region. TechStars has since extended its model to other regions of the country; helped to power other groups looking to create their own, TechStars-affiliated programs; had a television show created around its efforts; and launched a significant number of venture backed companies from its ranks.
