On Thursday, the first every Techstars program in Seattle wrapped up with ten new companies presenting in front of about 200 investors. Many of these companies are still raising money and most have interest in their rounds. If you’re an investor and you’d like an introduction to any of them, just drop us a note.
I was wow’d by Seattle in so many ways. Almost every venture fund and notable angel investor in town helped to fund the program. Dozens of outstanding mentors gave generously of their time. Andy Sack, the Managing Director of Techstars in Seattle did an absolutely fantastic job in year one, as did Kayla Roark who helped Andy manage the program. Techstars is very proud to now be a meaningful part of the Seattle community.
The following four videos in the Seattle video diary series will give you a little bit of a feel for what it was like in Seattle. You can navigate on the right side of the video or just let them play back to back. The first video covers Techstars For A Day, and the others show you a little bit of the day to day happenings over the last several months.
Thanks to the Rackspace Cloud for sponsoring the Techstars Seattle Diary videos. You can also watch the more detailed series “The Founders” to get a deeper look into what it’s like to go through Techstars.
