We’re excited to announce the launch of Techstars Atlanta, in partnership with Cox Enterprises. Techstars and Cox are focused on galvanizing the local startup community in the entire southeast region of the U.S. to to broaden and deepen Atlanta’s vibrant startup community and empower entrepreneurs to build great businesses. Techstars Atlanta will select, recruit and accelerate the most innovative startups focused on technologies driving positive change in an interconnected world.

Techstars Atlanta’s theme is: Life’s most important connections are happening in new and exciting ways. Social media platforms, cloud-based data, predictive analytics and cyber security are thoroughly interwoven in our daily lives. The industries of tomorrow – telecommunications, mobility, transportation, healthcare, and financial services – will need to aggregate and share vast amounts of information in creative new ways.

Cox Enterprises and Techstars share a common goal of catalyzing the entrepreneurial community in and around Atlanta, similarly to how Techstars has helped to strengthen startup communities across the globe. Techstars sees Atlanta as a leader in startup innovation in the southern U.S. with a dynamic startup community. Together with Cox Enterprises, our goal is to unify and rally the broader Atlanta business community around its startup community. We believe that great entrepreneurs are everywhere and Atlanta is no exception. It is full of successful business leaders, big brands and a wealth of tech talent that simply needs a way to connect - and this program will bring it all together. 

Applications open today and the program will kick off in summer of 2016!
