Building a startup takes founders through a long journey, from inspiration to scaling your company and ultimately an exit. At Techstars, we’re excited about helping entrepreneurs no matter where you are in the entrepreneur’s journey – from inspiration to IPO.

Nadya Nguyen from HidrateSpark is one example of an entrepreneur who has successfully traveled through the Techstars network. In 2014, Nadya and her team participated in a Startup Weekend and created the first smart water bottle in 54 hours! Their product was well-received and soon after they applied to and were accepted by the Sprint Accelerator, powered by Techstars!

You can learn more and watch this quick video on HidrateSpark below. Congratulations to Nadya and HidrateSpark!
