How It Works
Applications typically open four times a year for 12-weeks. Multiple applications do not increase your chances of acceptance, so pick the program that is the best fit for you. During the application period we may reach out to invite you to office hours or hope to meet you on the road at one of our Meet & Greet events.
After applications close, we’ll review applications for about seven weeks, and spend time getting to know even more about your team, market, progress and idea. Our goal is to notify the final group of companies being accepted within eight weeks from the application closing date.
What to Know Before Applying
Our applications are designed to better understand you, your team, market, progress and idea. Take your time to fill it out as best as you can. Your goal is demonstrate to Techstars your ability to execute on the idea. Don’t be sparse.
We are big on passion. We want our founders to be passionate about their startups. We want our Managing Directors and mentors to be passionate about the companies in the class. With passion being the uniting emotion, we believe magic can happen for a startup within the Techstars ecosystem. Show us your unbridled passion for your team and product.
It also helps to do research - look into each accelerator and the team behind it, and show us you’ve done your homework.
