How A Techstars Accelerator Works


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


Partner

We'll work hand-in-hand 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.


Collaborate

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.


Launch

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.


Engage

Now the work begins. Your corporate mentors dig in with founders to solve the biggest problems facing your industry. This is a two-way street where startups can learn from big brands and corporate veterans can see the value of doing more faster.


Reveal

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 together.


Network

While the program itself may be over, the ROI of the relationships continues to grow with an invaluable stream of partnerships and proof-of-concepts that benefit both partners and startups. It's a powerful combination.
