TechStars is an accelerator program with locations all around the world. They were started in 2006 by David Cohen in Boulder, Colorado. It is a 3-month long program that many companies have been through. A few to name that have came out of the Atlanta program are Drizzle, sequr, Bark, and fitspot.
This is a great opportunity for TheMonetizr team. TechStars was recently named a top 30 accelerator in the country in the platinum level. They will be able to get funding, mentorship, and have an office in Atlanta for three months. Also about three-fourths of companies that graduate the TechStars program are profitable by the end of the program.
This is a great achievement for TheMonetizr team and we are very proud of the progress they are making. We wish them all the best as they continue to grow their company in Atlanta.
