RollSale becomes a TechStars company!
RollSale is proud to announce our selection for the TechStars Boulder Class of 2012. Yesterday, we began operating from the downtown Boulder, CO TechStars office, and will be here for three months of intense mentoring and product evolution.
From the TechStars website:
TechStars is the #1 startup accelerator in the world. We’re very selective – Although thousands of companies apply each year, we only invest our money and time in about ten companies per program location. We have selection rates lower than the Ivy League, so you have to be among the best of the best to earn investment from TechStars.
We offer five TechStars programs in top startup locations (Boston, Boulder, New York City, Seattle, & Cloud in San Antonio), on aregular schedule. We invest $118K in each company we fund through $18K in seed funding and an optional $100K convertible debt note. TechStars itself is backed by over 75 different venture capital firms and angel investors who are vested in their success. We also provide three months of intensive top-notch mentorship, incredible perks, and the chance to pitch to angel investors and venture capitalists at the end of the program. Our companies average over $1M in outside venture capital raised after leaving TechStars. Look for yourself – see the full details and get statistical results.
Are we excited? Hell, yes.
