We are big supporters of accelerator programs.Â For startups the mentorship, direction, community and connections programs like TechStarsbrings is priceless. For investors these programs help teach entrepreneurs the â€˜waysâ€™ and gets them on the fight track, reducing some risk.Â For communities it provides a hub of innovation and excitement.
Itâ€™s great to see a TechStars come to NYC. David Cohen and team know the model, how to replicate it and have the track record. Â The largest beneficiary of the model and track record are the startups, they know the value they gain from it, its one less unknown.
They have lined up some amazing mentors in people like Fred Wilson, Roger Enrenberg, Howard Morgan, Kal Vepuri, Jeff Clavier, Â Dave McClure, Jon Steinberg, Phin Barnes and many more (click here for the full list of mentors).
We are very excited to be an investor in TechStars NYC and look forward to seeing the program do great things for startups, investors and the community.
They couldnâ€™t have selected a better guy to run the program in David Tisch, he is going to kick ass!
