Applications are now open for Techstars Q1 2017 accelerator programs. Apply now to join the Techstars network with more than 10,000 mentors, investors and founders. Deadline to apply is October 15, 2016. The Q1 2017 session kicks off in January 2017 in locations around the world.

With this session, we’re streamlining the schedule for our accelerator programs. We will now accept applications twice a year, and the programs will run in two sessions: Q1 (January – April) and Q3 (July – October). This change makes it easier for startup founders to know when to apply.

We’ll also hold a global recruiting tour to connect with the best startups in the world. Stay tuned for more details on this event and how you can meet the Techstars teams from the different accelerator programs.

Start here for your application for Q1 2017 now.
