Techstars 2022 'Anywhere Accelerator' Open to Companies Worldwide

21 July 2021/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

Techstars is a global ecosystem that empowers entrepreneurs to bring new technologies to market, wherever they choose to build their business. With mentorship-driven accelerator programmes worldwide, Techstars exists to support the most promising entrepreneurs throughout their lifelong journey.

The initiative provides access founders, mentors investors, and corporate partners. Techstars makes entrepreneurship more accessible by providing access to capital, guidance, marketing, business development, customer acquisition, and recruitment.

The funding provider believes that successful founders can come from anywhere and appreciates that relocating to a new city for an accelerator programme can be disruptive, owing to personal or business constraints. Techstars Anywhere is a virtual accelerator, which means participating businesses are not required to relocate. Founders follow the standard Techstars approach to accelerate their business.

The investment made in each company in terms of capital, time and network will be the same as other Techstars accelerators. Techstars companies will receive a US $100,000 of funding as a convertible note upon acceptance and US $20,000 in exchange for 6% equity stake.

Anyone from anywhere can apply. Technology oriented companies – typically web-based or other software companies – will be the focus for funding.

How To Apply

Applications for the 2022 Accelerator opened on 19 July 2021. The final deadline is 6 October 2021.

Further advice and assistance with submitting an application may be sought directly from the funding provider
