We are excited to announce the ten companies that will be joining Techstars for our 2016 Techstars program in Atlanta, Georgia. We kicked things off this morning with a gathering of members from the Atlanta startup community and from our corporate partner, Cox Enterprises, at the Techstars Atlanta Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, and are looking forward to three months of awesomeness, capped off by Demo Day on November, 1st at The Tabernacle. Save the date!

This is the inaugural Techstars program in Atlanta, and we’re fortunate to have an incredible pool of over 90 mentors from the Atlanta community, the Cox network, and Techstars alumni from other programs. Thank you, mentors! We’re grateful for your support of our new program, and your time and guidance. We couldn’t do it without you.

Techstars Atlanta: applications from all over the world. 


We love this city and know that 2016 is going to be an amazing year for both Techstars and Atlanta.

Without further ado, here are the Techstars Atlanta Summer 2016 companies:


Bark Technologies (Savannah, GA): Bark protects children by detecting messages that contain cyberbullying, sexting and signs of depression or suicidal thoughts using NLP and machine learning techniques to maintain a child’s privacy and preventing parents from having to spend hours reading their activity.


Drizzle (Los Angeles, CA): Drizzle gives website owners an incredibly easy way to let their visitors pay for premium content. You can choose to charge a-la-carte for your content, or offer your visitors a subscription to access all of your content.


Fitspot (Los Angeles, CA): Trying to cram a workout into your busy schedule? Fitspot lets you book one-on-one sessions with certified fitness trainers when and where you want. Plan ahead – or start in as little as 30 minutes.


Joonko (Tel Aviv, Israel): Identify and solve gender bias in your workplace, as it happens!


LaaSer (Atlanta, GA): Thousands of lives are lost each year due to incorrect location information being sent to 911 operators over existing mobile phone network technology. Calls are often routed to the wrong jurisdiction, address and latitude and longitude information are often wrong or not provided at all, and people lose their lives or suffer more than they had to as a result. Our company and our products were created for the sole purpose of solving this problem.


Preesale (Brussels, Belgium): Multiply your sales channels by increasing your tickets sales on Facebook. Easily connect your Facebook app to your Facebook page, create your tickets in less than 5 minutes and sell to targeted customers, and promote your events on Facebook – the best platform to target your attendees.

Sequr (Atlanta, GA): Sequr is the first ever visitor management system for communities using call boxes. They increase security by replacing permanent PIN codes with dynamic, time-sensitive PIN codes. The best thing about Sequr? They can do remote setup on any callbox anywhere in the world.


Splitty (Tel Aviv, Israel): Split your way to a better hotel deal! Choose your destination and dates, and Splitty’s “split and match” technology combines different reservation types to find the cheapest hotel stays for the dates that you want to travel.
