Some metrics from the past few weeks at TechStars in NYC:

  • 1 wedding
  • 39,000 working hours (60 hours x 13 weeks x 50 people)
  • 72 lbs of La Colombe coffee
  • 14 missing iPhone chargers
  • 5 pivots
  • 1 un-pivot (pivot, then back

We’re busy as ever as demo day looms on the 27th. We have now had over 100 mentors conduct office hours with the current teams. We’re eternally grateful to them for engaging and “going deep” and thought it would be neat to round them up below. Thank you, mentors!
