Learn How Filtrbox Got A Yellow TechStars Shirt

Comments (12)

Whenever a TechStars company is acquired, they get a yellow shirt with their number on the back.  Last month Fitrbox, a TechStars Boulder 2007 company, was acquired by Jive Software.  The yellow shirt presentation is in the short video below:

FiltrBox #4 TechStars Company to be Acquired from TechStars on Vimeo.

On Tuesday, February 9th at the Denver Athletic Club (1325 Glenarm in Denver) Filtrbox’s founders Ari Newman and Tom Chikoore are going to do a presentation titled Filtrbox – A Case Study from Start-up to Exit on the story of Filtrbox.  I expect this will include everything from the very start of the company, to their experience with TechStars, to their first financing, through launching a product, seeing early customer growth, and ultimately being acquired by Jive Software. 

This event is being hosted by the Rockies Venture Club and the discussion will be facilitated by Mark Weakley from HRO who was Filtrbox’s outside counsel and involved from the beginning.  Ari and Tom have a great story that’s instructive for any early stage entrepreneur – I encourage you to attend.

    Gold is so last year. You're not doing titanium or platinum shirts yet? Or is that for a whole different level of acquisition?

    This is great! We will be there! We are going to take as much knowledge from their brains as we can and place it in ours. :-)
