We recently celebrated our 10 year anniversary at Techstars. Over the 10 years, we have met so many great founders, mentors, partners and community leaders. We are honored to get the chance to work every day with amazing people building awesome companies, all around the world.

One of our core values since day one is #GiveFirst. Not only does this value and tradition still hold true today, but we are seeing founders, mentors, and more carrying it on throughout our Worldwide Network. We give without asking for anything in return and help any time we can. This is what helps entrepreneurs succeed.

We wanted to highlight the stories and work being done by some of our founders. We thought it would be an interesting new perspective to have them tell you what it feels like to be on the receiving end of #GiveFirst in the context of their Techstars experience. We hope you enjoy the video!
