By Amos Schwartzfarb, Managing Director of the Techstars Austin Accelerator
I am very excited to announce our second class of the year…the Techstars Austin 2022 Fall Class which kicks off today, August 29th, 2022. Before I get into the 12 amazing companies joining us, I want to share a few team updates and upcoming events!
I’ll begin with brief team updates. Caroline Tosbath and Dani Rose remain full time with me on the Techstars Austin team. Caroline Tosbath, as our Program Director, focuses on strategic operations, manages our mentor/investor/alumni network and works with me on the startup recruiting side. Dani Rose, our Program Manager, is responsible for all program operations and ensures that each founder has an unforgettable experience.
Brooke Bains, Autumn Manning, and Lander Coronado-Garcia return to us again as Entrepreneurs in Residence, each working with 4 of the 12 companies. Our Entrepreneurs in Residence are part of our special sauce here in Austin- they work hands on with our companies, guiding them through the program and supporting them in all areas of their business.
We also have some fun things coming up for our community. Techstars Austin Second Thursdays are back up and running. Take a look at our upcoming dates here and come hang out with the new class and the rest of the community.
Finally, our next program kicks off February 2023 and our applications are open!
