The Techstars Foundation is proud to announce a partnership with Betabrand, an online clothing community. Betabrand will donate $5 to the Techstars Foundation for each pair of Dress Pant Yoga Pants sold during the month of September. The goal of this campaign is to raise money and awareness for diversity in tech entrepreneurship, and we want you to get involved.

In addition to contributing $5 to the foundation for each pair sold, Betabrand is also offering a Sweepstakes to tech startup founders which includes interviews with Techstars’ Managing Directors, office hours with Techstars’ company founders, and a chance to win passes to Startup Weekends around the world. They’ve also highlighted some amazing open jobs in the startup community.

We often hear from founders that they want to support women and diversity in tech but don’t know how. Here’s your chance! This makes a great gift for you or someone you love. I mean, come on, Dress Yoga Pants!

I want to offer my heartfelt gratitude to the people of Betabrand for all of their generosity and creativity towards this effort. When they approached me with this idea, I was blown away. Betabrand has always spoken to founders, and to see them giving back actively to underrepresented entrepreneurs is just awesome.

Check out this page for more details on this special offer and please share with your favorite female founder! You might even spot some of your favorite Techstars’ founders modeling the pants on that page including Jackie and Andrea from Revolar, Leah from Nexosis, Diana from Indico, Caroline & Christine Stzalka from Itsbyu, Laura Spiekerman from Alloy, and our very own Sarah Bain from Techstars Retail.

Happy shopping!
