Opening opportunity to anyone, anywhere


Techstars strongly believes that great ideas come from anywhere and anyone—no matter what their backgrounds or where they live.


Techstars’ new $80M fund raised through the J.P. Morgan Private Wealth platform is running 37 accelerator programs across nine multicultural U.S. cities. These programs are open to founders of all backgrounds, with a particular focus on diverse entrepreneurs traditionally undervalued and overlooked by other venture capital sources.


Over three years, this fund aims to elevate 400+ companies and their local ecosystems with the proven Techstars approach combining customized programming, mentorship, and access to capital. Five programs—Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Miami, and Washington D.C.—begin in 2022 and are accepting applications from entrepreneurs of all backgrounds. Four additional programs—Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York and Oakland—will launch in 2023.
