We are beyond excited to announce Techstars Class 155 as part of the 2019 Techstars Austin program.
We kicked off this week (January 22nd) and we are looking forward to three months of intense business building culminating with our Demo Day on April 10 and Investor week April 15–17.
This year’s class is made up of companies from Los Angeles, CA, Chattanooga, TN, Toronto, Canada, Houston, TX, and of course Austin, TX.
Techstars is the worldwide network that helps entrepreneurs succeed. Our one and only goal is to support and help grow these incredible companies.
I would like to thank our mentors, partners, portfolio, and family for their generous support.
Without further ado, here are the Techstars Austin 2019 companies:
