This summer Techstars Anywhere has spent some time on the road meeting founders in Portland, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, and San Diego, and Washington DC. But we know that part of what makes Techstars Anywhere great is that you don’t have to be in any particular city to participate. So we’re hosting two upcoming online info sessions to provide an overview of the Techstars Anywhere Accelerator and answer any questions you may have about how Techstars’ only virtual accelerator works.

You can RSVP for the sessions here: Friday September 21, 10am PT or Thursday October 4, noon PT

Techstars Anywhere is our (mostly) virtual accelerator. We say (mostly) because we do get together in person three times during the program. The rest is done online using video conferencing and other tools to deliver a full world class accelerator experience. The program is built on the same platform as every Techstars mentorship-driven accelerator program, features an amazing group of mentors, provides full access to the Techstars network, and has the same investment as all Techstars accelerators. Because of the nature of the program, Techstars Anywhere is best suited to teams working in time zones across the continental United States.

Techstars Anywhere is a great option for founders who are building great companies in markets where access to resources from outside their region could be a game changer, but they either can’t (or shouldn’t) move to a new city for 13 weeks. Maybe you’ve got a team of employees that you can’t leave. Maybe you’ve got customers that rely on you to be there for them. Maybe you’ve got a family. We believe that great founders can come from anywhere, and we’re here to support those founders as only Techstars can.

Please join us for these online info sessions. We also have a limited number of office hours appointments available. You can apply for office hours here.

Keep building, and Do More Faster!
