The Techstars Retail Accelerator in partnership with Target starts this year, and applications are now open. We are looking for 10 retail technology startups that are looking to disrupt the $22 trillion retail industry.  Sound like you?  Let’s chat!

We are jet setting across the country in the coming months to meet with founders and discuss this amazing opportunity in Minneapolis this upcoming summer. We’ll be visiting New York, Boston, Minneapolis, San Francisco and Seattle to meet with awesome founders building innovative retail technology.

We are looking for startups that are rooted in fundamentally improving the customer retail experience. This is fairly broad but can be applicable to everything from online, in-store, delivery, distribution, manufacturing, payments, logistics and beyond.  

Techstars and Target will be on hand to explain this further, explain the perks of the program, and answer questions about the program. Food and drink will be provided.
