Cody is presently Executive Director at Techstars and head of Techstars accelerator and startup programs in North and South America. Our US-based accelerator programs are investing in 150+ startups a year in 15 locations across the USA with more to come, and our community startup programs such as Startup Weekend are present in nearly every country on both continents.  Previously, Cody established and launched the Disney Accelerator, powered by Techstars, in Los Angeles.

Earlier in his career, Cody held roles including Chief Product Officer of StumbleUpon, Vice President of Product Management at Yahoo, and Product Manager at The New York Times, Sprint, and NBC Internet. Cody is based in Los Angeles and when he's not working or traveling can often be found in the pool or at the beach, as you might expect.
