TechStars 2008 Applications Are Open

Jan 22, 2008
Category Techstars

The TechStars 2008 Applications are now open.  Last year we had 302 applications and accepted 10 companies.  8 of the 10 companies are now either financed or profitable and several have received acquisition offers.  If you apply before March 3rd, you are invited to come to our TechStars for a Day program.

We are having a TechStars party in the Bay Area this Thursday evening January 24th from 6pm to 8:30pm at the Plug and Play Tech Center (440 N Wolfe Road in Sunnyvale, California.)  Space is limited so if you are want to come, please sign up for the event on Facebook or drop the TechStars folks a note.

We’ve got some great new mentors for 2008, including Eric Marcoullier (the co-founder of MyBlogLog which was acquired by Yahoo) and Dick Costolo (the co-founder of FeedBurner which was acquired by Google.)

If you are in the Bay Area, I’m looking forward to seeing you Thursday night.
