Techstars, in partnership with JP Morgan, completed its Inaugural Miami Accelerator on December 7th 2022 with a successful Demo Day Celebration of over 450+ attendees in Wynwood Arts District in Miami.

During Demo Day, the 12 companies selected for the program presented their final pitch presentation to an audience of Venture Capitalists, Techstars Alumni, and other builders and entrepreneurs in the Miami tech ecosystem in search for additional funding and strategic partnerships.

The early-stage startups that took part in the first Techstars Miami Accelerator spanned across 5 different countries, including 7 CEOs who are 2x or more founders and 10 companies being led by CEOs that identify as racially, gender, or ethnically diverse. Companies range from a variety of industries including fintech, proptech, healthcare, SaaS, e-commerce, blockchain, aerospace, and edtech from pre-product to post-launch stages.

The Miami program was supported by 84 mentors, who are industry leaders and experts with diverse backgrounds and experiences, offering over 400+ mentor meetings throughout the course of the 13-week accelerator which was a mix of in-person and remote. Thank you to all the incredible mentors involved to make this program a success!

During the final week of the program, the 12 companies arrived in Miami and got to meet with 70+ local Miami investors for a private Investor Dinner at and an exclusive Venture Capital lunch to provide exposure and personal meetings with local funds looking for diverse and early-stage companies to invest in.

The Miami program was uniquely designed to provide equitable access to funding and support for Black, Hispanic and Latino, Indigenous American, and Pacific Islander entrepreneurs as well as accelerate founders' efforts in finding product-market fit, fundraising, and recruiting.
