[VIDEO] Celebrating Seven Years

Today is a special day. On November 14th, seven years ago, Techstars became official. The founders, David Cohen, Brad Feld, David Brown, and Jared Polis set out to help entrepreneurs with their mentorship-driven accelerator in Boulder, Colorado. It’s mind boggling to see its growth and impact across the world since the beginning. As of today, we have 300+ active companies, 27 acquired companies, 1200+ mentors, funding is $400M+ and our portfolio companies have created more than 2,000 jobs. See more here.

So the tradition continues with our mission to help entrepreneurs and create a powerful network of passionate doers. We could not have done it without the communities in each city, mentors and investors. Thank you! In honor of these seven amazing years, I propose today we all take the time to do something nice for another entrepreneur, big or small, it doesn’t matter… and why stop today?

Happy Birthday, Techstars! Time to blow out another candle and make a wish.
