Techstars Washington DC Powered by J.P. Morgan focuses on startups that can benefit from tapping into the unique strengths of DC’s innovation and startup ecosystem including our tech talent and diversity, and being a national and global center for policy making. Sector focuses include: health and wellness, education, finance, government and civic engagement, cybersecurity, and more. Open to founders of all backgrounds, the program is designed to provide equitable access to funding and support for Black, Hispanic and Latino, Indigenous American and Pacific Islander entrepreneurs. Through game-changing investment and community partnerships, together we will take steps towards dismantling institutional, structural, and systematic barriers that often limit opportunities.

The next Techstars Washington DC powered by J.P. Morgan accelerator will begin September 11, 2023, rather than in May as originally scheduled. This schedule has been changed to better balance our program timing throughout the year to ensure the best experience for founders. With 16 accelerator classes across our nine Techstars accelerator programs powered by J.P. Morgan this year, and 54 accelerator programs overall, we hope applicants will always find a program to suit their schedules and unique needs.
