We are thrilled to announce the nine companies that will be joining Techstars for our 2018 Impact program in Austin, TX.
Nine months ago we set out to find nine world-class teams who like us, believe that our deepest problem sets represent our biggest opportunities, and that entrepreneurs should sit at the center of our strategy to build a better future.
On June 4th, 2018, nine teams arrived in Austin from around the world as part of our inaugural class, and we are looking forward to three months digging deep with these teams to bring business and impact into lock step, capped off by Demo Day on Aug. 23rd, 2018.
These nine teams represent a diverse mix of founders and industries, with operations across the United States, as well as Mexico, Nigeria and South Asia. Techstars is the Worldwide Network that helps entrepreneurs succeed, and strong partners and mentors help make this happen. Without further ado, here are the Impact 2018 companies:
