Techstars Atlanta Accelerator Announces 2019 Class

Jul 15, 2019

Today I’m excited to announce the  2019 Class of Techstars Atlanta in partnership with Cox Enterprises.

When it was announced that I’d be taking over the program at the beginning of this year, I knew I wanted to focus on startups from the American South because of my personal and startup experience here and the opportunity to find world-class founders in this underserved part of the country.

After six months of traveling all over this region, meeting with over seven hundred founders and reviewing hundreds of applications, we are ready to announce the ten startups that have earned a spot in our highly competitive program.  Our fourth consecutive Techstars Atlanta Class represent six Southeast states along with startups from Illinois and New Jersey. 

Techstars Atlanta is based out of Ponce City Market in the heart of Atlanta, is a 13-week program that helps founders #domorefaster. During 90 days of rapid acceleration the entrepreneurs will build their business network, receive individualized support from Cox team members and Techstars network, and learn the building blocks of a successful business – all while embedding in Atlanta’s thriving startup ecosystem. The program kicks off with mentor madness, where more than 1,000 hours of mentorship is provided by leaders and corporate employees from Cox Enterprises, as well as regional leading subject matter experts.

We welcome everyone to join us at our Demo Day on October 15th at the Tabernacle where each of these ten startups will present the progress of their businesses to investors and supporters.

Please join us in welcoming the Techstars Atlanta in partnership with Cox Enterprises Class of 2019!
