This has been a big year for Techstars. We’re 10 years old and have now seen over 1,000 companies in the Techstars Mentorship-Driven Accelerator Programs. We have over 30 active programs running this year which means that we are adding roughly 300 founders to our portfolio!

We are excited to announce that these new classes will add an additional 114 companies to the Techstars Worldwide Network.

Out of our 30 global Techstars Mentorship-Driven Accelerator Programs, 11 are kicking off this week. Four of these are inaugural classes and locations including Techstars Adelaide, Techstars Kansas City, Techstars Los Angeles and the Alexa Accelerator, Powered by Techstars in Seattle.

Since we’re just kicking off and don’t have any stories about the teams to tell yet, we thought it would be fun to share a great #givefirst story about launching Techstars Adelaide.

When we first started talking about extending our worldwide network to Adelaide, we reached out to contacts we had in Australia. Two of those people have long ties with both Brad Feld and Jenny Lawton from EO, the Kauffman Foundation, as mentors in Techstars and the Techstars Boulder network.

We started talking with Jana Matthews about connecting us with mentors, managing directors, investors and partners and she reminded us that Terry Gold was working with her in Adelaide as well. Terry was a longtime resident of Boulder and a well respected entrepreneur in the local ecosystem. We were thrilled when we humbly asked Jana if she would consider us inviting Terry to apply to be the managing director for Techstars Adelaide, and the rest is history!  

With the support of our corporate partners, mentors and the entire Techstars network, we are thrilled to present to you the Q3 2017 companies:
