Apply to TechStars in Boulder 2013

Hi, folks. My name is Luke and I have the good fortune of being the new Managing Director for TechStars in Boulder.

As a devout Colorado native, experienced entrepreneur and a grateful member of the TechStars family for a few years now, I’d like to invite you and your co-founders to apply to the Boulder program.

Methods for successfully building your business are as unique as the entrepreneurs who start them – and there’s ample information out there about our accelerator. Best way to get a feel of it? See these. That said, I would like to share three things with you. In my opinion, these are the are the 3 most valuable things that TechStars provides its entrepreneurs:

  • success and course correction at speed – the opportunity to turn what takes most businesses two years into 3 months
  • the massive, comprehensive and deeply personal TechStars network – a collection of alums, partners, friends and mentors that you can access and contribute to – for the rest of your personal and professional life
  • founders of 10 or so other companies who will be your parallel, sympathetic and understanding confidants – thus making your life as an entrepreneur a powerful, less isolating, shared experience

If these elements would evolve your team and your new business, please apply. The early application deadline is February 15th and the final deadline is March 14th. Apply by the early deadline to qualify for invitation to TechStars for a Day.

And please, please, please don’t assume that your business doesn’t fit a preconceived mold. I’m looking for super unique businesses. This summer, I want to work alongside companies that I never would have thought existed.

A Special Thanks to:
