The Techstars Experience: Rex Animal Health

What’s it like to go through a Techstars program? Why choose our accelerator program over others?

This is the next post in our blog series, “The Techstars Experience,” with some thoughts from Amado Guloy, Co-Founder and CEO of Rex Animal Health. Rex enables access to animal health data and analytics for pharmaceutical companies and veterinary service providers. Amado and his co-founder, Haven Moore, are part of the Techstars Sprint Accelerator Program 2015 and are getting ready for Demo Day next week!

Here are some highlights from a few of Amado’s posts:

[re: why the network matters]

We have to leverage our networks. We have to help each other. That’s one thing I absolutely love about the Techstars mantra of GIVE FIRST. You have access to an amazing network of over 1500 founders, mentors, and investors. People are willing to give before they get, because that’s what we’re all about. It’s certainly how Rex has gained a ridiculous amount of traction in a such a small amount of time; people have helped us along the way, have given us amazing introductions, and have given us actionable advice on how to grow our business and kick as*.

[re: winning and growth]

The atmosphere at the office isn’t one of competition, but everyone has set goals for themselves and what they want to accomplish so ‘winning’ means accomplishing said goals. It’s a fantastic feeling to know that you’re rooting for the other teams and that they’re rooting for you.

…the past three weeks have felt like three years. I do not think there is any other way that we could have figured out what strategy and market we would be going after in a matter of three weeks without the guidance we have received thus far. As we enter our final week of mentor madness, I am proud to say that the company has grown leaps and bounds over where we were before.

[re: founder fear]

A lot of entrepreneurs end up not doing anything because of fear. They’re scared that they might do the wrong thing when facing a fork in the road. They’re afraid of the potential outcome that could totally rock their assumptions about the market. In the end, entrepreneurs who are scared just end up kicking the can down the road, staying in their happy little comfort zones, and get absolutely nothing done….So how do you get out of the space of intention and into the space of realization? Or in other words, how do you get out of planning phase and actually go out there to get shi* done.

To get the full story of this founder’s Techstars Experience, read more of Amado’s posts here.
