Announcing the 12 Companies for the Boston 2015 Class
This post originally appeared on blog.up.co
We are thrilled to announce the 2015 Techstars class in Boston. Our session began June 4th, and will wrap up with a demo day on September 1st.
This year we have amplified our recruiting efforts by working more closely with mentors in our community to identify the most promising startups in the region. We have also gone on a road show in Europe and the Middle East, and have been in touch with many of the most vibrant startup ecosystems globally. The result is a record number of applications and a diverse class of 12 companies, some of which have come to Boston from as far away as Portugal, Spain, Ukraine, and Canada.
The companies in the class span across diverse spaces, including travel, mobile, edtech, enterprise software, SaaS, retail, 3-D printing, and food distribution tech. They are all trying to solve big problems, but many of them are also joining our program with substantial existing momentum.
