Techstars London

Techstars is a mentorship-driven seed stage investment programme. We run a three month long programme in Austin (TX), Boston (MA), Boulder (CO), Cloud (San Antonio, TX), Chicago (IL), New York City (NY), Seattle (WA), and London (UK) once each year. Additionally, we run several “Powered by Techstars” programmes with some of the best brands in the world. We’re very selective – hundreds of companies apply and we only take about ten companies per city. These companies get €15,000 in seed funding. In addition, companies accepted into the program are offered a $100,000 convertible debt note by a group of prominent VCs immediately upon acceptance into Techstars. Funding details here. Techstars founders also get great perks such as free hosting and services, a nice place to work, three months of intensive top-notch mentorship, and the chance to pitch to angel investors and venture capitalists at the end of the program. There is immeasurable value in the mentorship-driven connections and advice that you’ll receive when you start your company with Techstars. When the program concludes, being an alum does not. The supportive network of Techstars alumni, mentors, and investors is unrivalled. The opportunity to pitch to angel investors and venture capitalists at the end of the program is provided during our Investor and Demo Day. Historically, Techstars companies go on to average more than $1.5M raised in outside capital after the program. Techstars provides €15,000 in seed funding from over 75 top venture capital firms and angel investors who are vested in the success of your startup, as well as intense mentorship from hundreds of the best entrepreneurs in the world. Each company accepted into Techstars is also immediately offered an additional $100,000* in convertible debt at their option from a group of prominent venture capital firms. Techstars work with 10 sme's each year and the programme lasts 13 weeks. Applications can be made at
