About Techstars Accelerators

Techstars is a mentorship-driven, seed-stage, accelerator that takes technology-based startups from concept to high-growth enterprise. We invest a small amount of capital into each company, then match those startups with amazing mentors and incredible business development opportunities, and also introduce those entrepreneurs to investors around the world.


Techstars Boulder started in 2007, and runs one program with 10-12 companies about once a year. With over a decade of track record, Techstars Boulder is a well-regarded program. Our alumni include SendGrid, Digital Ocean, Sphero, and more.

Our Community

The magic of Techstars in Boulder comes from over 100 of the areas best entrepreneurs, mentors, and investors who donate their time to making the next generation of great entrepreneurs a success. Sponsorship helps put resources around our mentor program to ensure its continued success.

The Network is strong and growing

The Techstars Network extends to 23 programs around the world and features over 2000 highly selected mentors, 2500 investors, and relationships with top brands such as Target, Cox, Barclays, Ford, Cedar-Sinai, Virgin Media and more. Becoming a sponsor means becoming part of the family.

Our Results

The program is highly selective, less than 2% of companies that apply get in. Over 500 companies have gone through Techstars, with 110 in Boulder alone, and our data shows that the Techstars program has nearly inverted the failure statistic for startups, 90% are active or acquired.


Our companies have raised nearly a two billion dollars and average about $1.5M in financing coming out of Techstars. While we can't take all the credit, we think Techstars has been pretty influential in putting Boulder on the map for great places for startups. Sponsorship helps that trend continue!
