    Program Outline

    Our Corporate Innovation partnerships grow into long-term relationships that revolve around our three month accelerator program.

    Let’s tell the world we’re working together to fuel business growth and achieve your strategic innovation objectives. As we launch an accelerator in your industry, we will work together to drive an internal culture of innovation.
    Led by a dedicated Techstars Managing Director, Program Manager and Partnership Manager, we will collaborate on the company selection process to choose the most innovative companies in your industry.
    After company selection, it’s time to announce the class and kick off the program! The three month deep dive begins as you watch the cultural transformation spread like wildfire throughout your business.
    Now, the real work begins. During the program, your corporate mentors dig in with founders to solve the biggest problems facing your industry. This relationship becomes a two way street where startups learn from the big brands and even the most experienced corporate veteran sees the value of doing more faster.
    The program culminates with a celebration at Demo Day. This is where the companies get their moment in the spotlight to show investors what they’ve accomplished in three short months.
    While the program itself may be over, our partnership grows in the off season through new opportunities to engage with the Techstars network through M&A, investment or ongoing mentorship.
