Why Techstars?

#GIVEFIRST

Our value of GiveFirst means we help others whenever possible.

We are all busy, but when the ask is sincere and realistic, we respond and help. We are respectful of each other’s time and are clear and focused in our requests. We deliberately create a virtuous cycle. We proactively work to give back to the network by giving first to others in our community with no specific expectations of return.

DO MORE FASTER

Techstars helps accelerate startups’ business success by helping them #domorefaster.

Startups learn faster – they iterate and they pivot. They can immediately throw things away that don’t work. No one is trying to protect a brand that may not exist yet, and nobody has reason to be afraid of small failures. Startups know that’s just part of the process.
