New TechStars Mentors
I am delighted to see the addition of several new mentors for the 2008 edition of TechStars including Jeff Clavier (SoftTech VC), Matt Mullenweg (Automattic / WordPress.com), Dick Costolo (FeedBurner/Google), Eric Marcouller (MyBlogLog/Yahoo), Jeff Nolan (NewsGator), and Josh Hug (Shelfari). They join the incredible list of 50+ mentors for 2008 just waiting to help your new company this summer.
Eight of the ten companies from last summer are now profitable or have been funded beyond TechStars. Based on the applications and interest we have seen so far, this summer looks like it may turn out to be even more exciting.
The application deadline for TechStars is March 31. If you apply by March 3rd, we’d love for you to come and hang out with us on TechStars For A Day on March 5th.
