On Monday, our company joined a group of talented companies in the first cohort of the Techstars Sustainability Accelerator in Partnership with The Nature Conservancy! It's been an incredibly exciting ride, with the last two days filled with amazing workshops, mentorships, and conversations with the fellow companies in our cohort.
For those who are unfamiliar, Techstars is a three month mentorship-driven accelerator with a phenomenal track record of helping companies succeed. Since their start in 2006, they have worked with 1503 companies, with 90% of them still active or acquired, receiving $5.44B in funding, and representing over $13.9B in market cap — in a world where over 99.9% of startups fail, these numbers are quite impressive. We are quite honored to have been chosen to be a part of this network and can't wait to continue the journey over the next 3 months. This is the first time Techstars has partnered with a multinational NGO in The Nature Conservancy, and we're very lucky to learn on their expertise, as well as having the accelerator right here in Denver.
The program culminates in a final Demo Day on October 17, 2018. The event is open to the public and we highly encourage you to attend! We will be sharing more details as we get them, but please stay tuned to our blog for future updates.
