CloudGuide is thrilled to announce that we are now officially a Techstars backed company! This accelerator company invests in founders to help them ‘Do More Faster’. Each year, they choose over 300 companies to join their three month mentorship-driven accelerator, investing $120K and providing hands-on mentorship and access to the Techstars Network for life. Therefore, this is a huge opportunity for CloudGuide to grow!
Techstars provide founders with the opportunity to work alongside the 10 other companies in their program in order to take their business to the next level with the help of the industry’s most talented mentors who guide them through the steps of boosting their startup. Being a part of this amazing program and having guidance from the Techstars Managing Director and Program Manager will open doors for entrepreneurs and lead them down the path to success. One entrepreneur who was mentored by Techstars states that “having the Techstars badge creates a lot of confidence in the market that you’re a real company, a real entrepreneur”. In a start up in can be hard to find your feet and establish yourself in a huge global market, so having this seal of approval from Techstars is a huge deal and really allows each startup to shine and find their way on their own.
This is so exciting for CloudGuide because it means that we will become more visible and more stable. With Techstars the focus is on the community - growing together and helping each other by sharing skills, advice and experience. We will be part of the Techstars community for life which will give us access to over 1,500,000 founders, investors, mentors, and industry leaders, allowing us to expand our network and grow our business.
It really is a huge honour to be one of the 11 companies to collaborate with Techstars this year and we cannot wait to start seeing the results.
