Techstars NYC Goes Global

Mar 22, 2021

By Jenny Fielding, Managing Director of Techstars New York City Accelerator

This past year, we’ve had to get creative and adjust many of the traditional ways in which we serve founders to the realities of our remote-first world. While we were disappointed about not gathering in our NYC office for the last program, we leaned into the fact that we could now more easily recruit and serve founders from around the world. Today, I’m thrilled to announce the Techstars NYC 2021 class that reflects a new global perspective. From Nairobi to London, San Francisco to Lisbon, these ten companies are focused on building scalable international solutions while taking advantage of all the resources that the Techstars New York City program has to offer.
