Today we announce the 10 companies joining Techstars NYC this summer, and we couldn’t be more excited for the next 13 weeks!

Building on our initiative to further grow the NYC entrepreneurial ecosystem, we selected a diverse group of founders looking to build products, grow their businesses, and take advantage of the deep bench of resources that NYC has to offer. Half of the companies joining the program are from NYC, with the other half hailing from the Bay Area, Dallas, Miami, and Boston.

During our recruiting season, we made a big push to reach out to diverse founders and partnered with several organizations who helped our efforts. As a result, six out of the 10 CEOs in the class are women—a Techstars NYC first. We’re committed to making the program inclusive and representative of the city we call home.

This year we’ve also invested in a broad range of verticals, from insurance to media, banking to mobility, proptech to wellness. While the program is not thematic, we placed a special emphasis on ‘world positive’ companies led by founders looking to make a positive impact on society. We could not be more proud of the mission-driven founders joining this class. 

Earlier this year I took over Techstars NYC and received an outpouring of encouragement from mentors, alumni, investors, and community members. This program would not happen without all of them, and we are truly grateful for all the support. We also received many applicant referrals this year and would like to specifically thank Joel Wish,, Maria Palma, Matt Kozlov, Ari Newman, Scott Hartley, Hugh Geiger, and Mark Solon for referring companies that joined the program. 

Welcome to the new class: we are thrilled to have you in the Techstars family!
