You may hear us talk a lot about #givefirst at Techstars. It’s the philosophy that you give without expecting anything in return. It’s really a powerful mindset and was one of the guiding principles Techstars was founded on. Brad Feld talks about it here.  We have thousands of amazing mentors who have deep engagement with our founders, and we’re endlessly thankful for their ​dedication to helping them succeed​. These relationships don’t end after the program does,​ but often continue for life.

With that, have a wonderful and happy Thanksgiving!
