There’s a little over three weeks to go ahead of the deadline to apply for Techstars Connection, in partnership with AB InBev, so I wanted to share some info that will give interested companies and entrepreneurs a little more info on the program and what we’re up to.

I spent the last week meeting some amazing companies here in New York, and I want to meet more of you. We’re looking for a wide range of companies that can work with AB InBev to provide interesting solutions in areas like:

  • Data and Analytics – on everything from sales and marketing, to production through to logistics, and beyond

  • Connecting People with Product – everything from inventory management systems, logistics, on demand, sales tools and more

  • Enhancing Social Experiences – from VR, AR, AI, recommendation engines and products that connect people or augment and enhance experiences before, during and after events

  • Fermentation Technology and Healthy Fermented Beverages – agtech, ideas that leverage the hidden benefits of the raw materials used in brewing

The scope is huge. If you want to find out more about whether or not your company would be a good fit, then let’s chat. I’m going to be doing a ton of open office hours on Skype/Hangouts etc. You can find some time to chat in my calendar.

I’m also running a series of webinars – where you can join and find out more info about what we’re all about, what we’re looking for and how the process will work. You can tune in on the following dates:

Tuesday June 21st at 12pm PT, 3pm ET, 8pm GMT

Wednesday June 22nd at 8am ET, 1pm GMT

Tuesday June 28th at 12pm PT, 3pm ET, 8pm GMT

Friday July 1st at 8am ET, 1pm GMT

For those of you who can’t join at one of those times, send me an email and keep an eye on my Twitter, as I’ll be recording a version of the webinar early next week. I just need to refine my pitch.

Also, here’s a thought – if you’re going to Glastonbury and you want to do the first ever accelerator office hours there, say hello on Twitter and maybe we can find some time to meet at West Holts on Thursday or Friday. 😉

I’ll also be in London, Dublin, NYC and possibly Austin before applications close, so if you’d like to meet in person, feel free to send me an email, a LinkedIn message, a DM, a PM, a tweet, a smoke signal, a Snapstorm or anything else you think will pique my interest. I look forward to answering your questions, telling you more about what we’re up to and hearing about the incredible businesses that you’re building.

    I like your mix of seriousness and fun! Four interesting venues… too bad you not yet making it to S. Calif.. Our V.R. situation will have to wait then. Best of luck.
