We are excited to announce the eleven companies that will be joining Techstars in Austin for our 2014 summer program. We kicked things off this week on June 9th and are deep in our three month sprint to Demo Day on September 3rd. Save the date!
Heading into the second program in Austin, we’re fortunate to have many of our 2013 Austin alumni on the ground as well as almost 100 incredible mentors. Thank you, mentors! We’re incredibly grateful for your support last year and your continued time and guidance. We couldn’t do it without you.
We love this city and know 2014 is going to be an amazing year for both Techstars and Austin. Let’s do this together!
