We are proud to announce that 19 Techstars’ companies have been named to the Forbes 30 Under 30 this year. Companies from Techstars city programs out of London, NY, Boston and Seattle were recognized as well as founders from our corporate programs with Disney, Sprint, R/GA and Qualcomm. A special shout out goes to Zapier, a Startup Weekend alumni, who made the list!

These founders have been called out as the “brightest young entrepreneurs, innovators and game changers.” We look forward to seeing more great things from them in 2017, and from all the amazing founders in the Techstars family all across the globe.
