We believe entrepreneurs can change the world.

From startup founders, to corporate employees, to visionary dreamers, entrepreneurs hold the keys to the greatest challenges of our time. They see opportunities. They take risks. And they clear the path for entire industries. At Techstars, we help grow their ideas into world-changing businesses.

We believe collaboration drives innovation.

The history of breakthrough technology is the history of people, teams, and partners working in sync to achieve their goals and scale their ideas. By bringing together ambitious founders and corporations, Techstars enables innovation through creative, powerful relationships.

We believe great ideas can come from anywhere.

This means beyond Silicon Valley, even beyond developed countries. At Techstars, we actively cultivate startup culture at the local level, growing communities of entrepreneurs through live events, mentorship, and education to create a more sustainable and inclusive world.

We give first.

We help others whenever possible, giving first to our community with no specific expectations of return.

We act with integrity.

We are honest and strive to be clear and transparent in our behavior and communications.

We treat others with respect. 

We are committed to ensuring an inclusive work environment that values the diversity of people and cultures around the world. 

We are here to start a movement.

Techstars is igniting the global information economy. Creating opportunities in neglected communities. Advancing innovative teams and ideas, no matter where they originate.
