Session 12: Techstars in Hampton Roads
Techstars is an investment company that offers accelerators and investing for early-stage companies. The company has accepted over 2,500 portfolio companies with a combined market capitalization of $52.2bn USD. Fewer than 1% of applicants are accepted into Techstars accelerators, however, 85% of Techstars’ accelerator graduates are either in business or have had a successful exit after 5 years.
A strong startup ecosystem with the right resources and support produces better entrepreneurial outcomes, creating an engine for innovation, growth, and job creation. In partnership with GO Virginia, 757 Accelerate, and 757 Angels, Techstars will provide support to build and strengthen the Hampton Roads startup community and introduce more Hampton Roads companies into the Techstars pipeline. The objectives of this engagement are to assess the current state of entrepreneurship in the Hampton Roads region, drive more engagement between and around local founders, and to nurture a larger, self-sustaining, resilient, and inclusive environment for entrepreneurs.
An open Q&A session will be available to ensure that everyone understands the opportunities brought by VEDP.
Zoom log-in details will be emailed out to registrants in advance of the session.
