If you are thinking about applying to the TechStars Boston 2010 program, take 15 minutes and do it now. Tomorrow (Tuesday 1/5) is TechStars for a Day in Cambridge, MA. You’ll only get an invitation if you have applied by today. You’ll get to spend the day learning about TechStars and hanging out with TechStars mentors like Shawn Broderick, David Cohen, Bill Warner, Bijan Sabet along with some of founders from TechStars Boston 2009 companies, such as AccelGolf, AmpIdea, Localytics, and TempMine.
If you are thinking about starting a company and wonder why you’d bother with TechStars, take a look at the great post that Tom Monaghan, the co-founder of TempMine, wrote today titled Mentorship-driven or Why I applied to TechStars.
And, as a special bonus late breaking news item, Graphic.ly (formerly named Take Comics, one of the TechStars Boulder 2009 companies) announced that it has raised a $1.2m financing led by DFJ Mercury with participation from Starz Media and some well known angels. My good friend Micah Baldwin has joined as CEO. Psyched for them.
Come out and play. Entrepreneurship is fun.
