Techstars Atlanta Powered by J.P. Morgan

Open to founders of all backgrounds, Techstars Atlanta powered by J.P. Morgan accelerator program is designed to provide equitable access to funding and support for Black, Hispanic and Latino, Indigenous American and Pacific Islander entrepreneurs who are building the future of Commerce Technology, Consumer Brands and Platforms, and the Creator Economy. The upcoming program will run in a remote-first format with the first and final weeks in person, and the rest of the program operating in a remote setting. Through game-changing investment community partnerships, together we will take steps towards dismantling institutional, structural, and systematic barriers that often limit opportunities.
