We are thrilled to announce the ten companies for Techstars Austin 2018 Accelerator. This year’s class features a diverse set of companies with unbelievable founders who have already gained significant traction.

We kick off the accelerator on January 22nd in our new offices at 220 S Congress Avenue (right on Lady Bird Lake and South Congress Avenue – come say hi!) and wrap up with Demo Day on April 20th. This is the sixth program in Austin, and we’re honored to be supported by an incredible alumni and mentor community.

We have six companies from the Carolinas and four from here in Austin. We are also really proud to have seven companies led by minority and female founders. All of these companies are tackling interesting problems, and joining Techstars Austin to focus on growth of their business.
