By KJ Singh, Managing Director of the Techstars NYC Accelerator
Today marks the start of the Spring 2022 Techstars NYC Accelerator Program. This NYC program is very near and dear to my heart: nearly a decade ago, I started my Techstars journey at this very program where I had the privilege of supporting 115 companies and several hundred founders on their entrepreneurial journeys. This upcoming program also marks an opportunity for us to be in person joined by a diverse group of founders from across the globe.
This year we received applications from over 48 countries and ultimately selected a group of global founders that hail from Nigeria, Israel, France, Cameroon, Canada and cities in the US including Dallas, New York, Washington D.C., Las Vegas, and Princeton.
We had a very competitive application pool and selecting these 12 companies was extremely difficult. The companies joining us in this year’s class are helping solve many issues - from tools enabling financial wellness, to technology fostering better health outcomes and solutions to make supply chains more efficient and green. These companies will help guide us through life post-pandemic.
We will be sharing more about each company in the weeks leading up to the end of the program in late June, but for now please join us in welcoming the Techstars NYC Class of Spring 2022!
