We are happy to announce that we have been selected to join the 2012 class of TechStars NY! TechStars is a startup incubator program, founded by David Cohen, and is an amazing mentorship-driven seed stage investment program. This year, 14 companies were selected out of an astounding 1,500 applicants from over 40 countries – we feel so grateful that all of our hard work has led to this incredible opportunity.
The program started yesterday, so for the next three months we’ll be working out of the TechStars office alongside the other 13 companies that were selected. It will be grueling, but being around so many amazing companies and working with the unbelievable slate of mentors TechStars NY has put together will help us learn more in three months than we probably would have in two years somewhere else.
The New York program is run by David Tisch and Adam Rothenberg – two unbelievable operators. After only the first day, it’s clear how much both of them give to TechStars and how much they treasure working with the TS NY startups. We’re honored to be part of the TS family and we’ll keep everybody posted as we spend the next three months trying to keep building something amazing.
