The new year is off to a great start, and we are excited to continue our commitment to changing the landscape for diversity in technology entrepreneurship. In the fall of 2015, the Techstars Foundation was born, a non-profit created to provide resources through grants and funding to organizations that will have a scalable impact on diversity in tech entrepreneurship.

We are thrilled to announce that grant applications are officially open for the foundation. Both nonprofit and for profit organizations worldwide are eligible to apply.

We look forward to making an impact in diversity in tech entrepreneurship together.
