Watch Techstars’ Baltimore and DC Managing Directors Share Regional Vision on Latest ‘The Monthly Blend’ Episode

Founded in Boulder, Colorado, Techstars started as an experiment to see if 100 mentors could help 10 startups scale.

The experiment worked so well that Techstars was approached by other cities and global corporations such as Disney and Microsoft to launch similar programs.  It has since invested in over 3,000 companies and has accelerators around the world. The areas around DC and Baltimore are becoming key hubs for Techstars and form the bases of at least four accelerators: Future of Longevity and Techstars Washington DC Powered by J.P. Morgan in DC, and Techstars Equitech and STANLEY + Techstars in Baltimore. Keith Camhi and Adam Phillips lead Techstars’ accelerators in DC and Baltimore, respectively, and they are excited by the potential of the region to support founders.
