Techstars is excited to be working closely with Startup Boost (who you may remember we partnered with in March this year) for their 3rd cohort starting late September. Applications for the Fall program are open until September 17th here.
Between six and eight pre-seed/seed stage tech teams will be selected to take part in the pre-accelerator program. Prerequisites include a comprehensive business model, a Minimum Viable Product (MVP), and market validation or traction. Working in tandem with keynote speakers, the Startup Boost City Directors offer industry insights alongside hands-on mentorship, guidance, validation and the necessary resources for building traction.
Concluding with a global demo day, this year’s Autumn 2018 startups’ will gain exposure to potential new sales leads, and the opportunity to pitch and connect directly with investors and accelerator directors.
“Startup Boost was an invaluable experience for our business it really helped us to validate our business idea and focus on our target market. The connections and ongoing support from the startup boost team has been invaluable” – Ronan Kelly Founder of Bespoke Choice from the 2017 Autumn Startup Boost Dublin Cohort.
One of the founding members of Startup Boost and EIR at Bank of Ireland Gene Murphy said ‘The benefit of Startup Boost is that it brings a program to help pre seed investment teams make the next big step in an under supported stage to prepare them for Accelerators, Investment and most importantly Revenue generation’.
Applications are now open to all pre-seed/seed stage startups for Startup Boost Dublin’s Autumn program at startupboost.org/apply with entries to the program closing on September.
