Hello! My name is Trey Bowles, and I am excited to announce my new role as the Managing Director of Techstars Anywhere. As a serial entrepreneur with multiple exits, I am passionate about working with and helping founders grow their businesses. Over my career, I have worked in various industries and with over 10,000 startups. It's an honor to support founders on their entrepreneurial journey. I live in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, with my bride, three amazing children, and our dog (a standard poodle).
Techstars Anywhere, which has been one of the most popular Techstars accelerator programs, has been around for quite some time. I am excited to join a team of veteran and experienced mentors and alumni, who have been working hard to shape and improve the program.
Techstars Anywhere is a remote-first program that welcomes startups from all over the world, focusing primarily on founders in the Americas time-zones. This remote program offers flexibility and convenience for participants, regardless of their location. I am enthusiastic about the unique opportunities that Techstars Anywhere provides for startups and founders.
Being part of Techstars Anywhere allows us to benefit from the wisdom of the program founder and original Managing Director, Ryan Kuder, who will continue to mentor, advise, and counsel the team and participating companies with this next class. Ryan has been an essential part of the creation, growth, and success of Techstars Anywhere, and his continued involvement guarantees that we will continue on the path to greatness. I am eager to work with Ryan and build upon his excellent work. I am thrilled to work alongside Ryan and build upon the excellent job he has done. The program will continue to benefit from Ryan’s mentorship and involvement, combined with the rest of the team and hopefully the added perspective I can bring as a repeat entrepreneur, will create a unique culture and environment making this program unparalleled in the world.
Thanks to the hard work of the amazing team of staff, mentors and alumni, Techstars Anywhere has had tremendous success over the years. I look forward to working with the amazing team comprised of Program Manager Carly Forcade, Program Coordinator Maddie Light, Entrepreneurs-in-Residence (EiRs) Kate Brodock, Julie Penner, and Misti Cain. In addition to the “best part of Techstars” the talented and experience group of Mentors who help us take the program to the next level, continuing to provide startups with the necessary resources, connections and strategic guidance to succeed.
Being part of Techstars Anywhere means gaining access to an invaluable network of experienced and successful entrepreneurs who are more than willing to help and support the success of all startups in the program. This program truly is a unique place where ideas and innovation can thrive. I am excited to be part of a program that believes in the power of worldwide innovation. Techstars Anywhere provides a platform for startups from different parts of the world to come together and exchange ideas, experiences, and knowledge, enriching each other and helping each other succeed. This program offers an innovative perspective and outlook, and empowers startups worldwide to reach new heights of success.
I am excited to complement the amazing work that has already been accomplished and bring my entrepreneurial experience of over two decades to the team. I hope to continue to build on the strides that the program has already accomplished. I invite our mentors, investors, and Techstars Anywhere accelerator alumni to join us on this journey. I look forward to the continued success of the Techstars Anywhere program.
