When close to 400 companies apply to a Techstars program, and only 10 are selected to participate in a program, there’s a high degree of vetting that goes on just in order to get into a class.
Add into the mix that the program is sponsored by one of the world’s leading financial institutions it raises the bar even more. The partnership between Barclays and Techstars brings two global networks together that offers entrepreneurs unprecedented access not only to a leading bank but also to Techstars network of tens of thousands of community leaders, founders, mentors, investors, and corporate partners.
With accelerator programs in New York, London, Cape Town, and now in Tel Aviv, The Barclays Accelerator Powered by Techstars also lets the companies visit the different facilities to collaborate with specific mentors, prospective customers, and to understand local market needs.
Over the last 13 weeks, Managing Director, Liron Rose, Program Managers, Yasmin Nachum and Mark Lazar and over 100 Techstars & Barclays mentors have working with the companies. Demo Day is the culmination of this hard work. On June 22 from 9:30AM, these 10 companies will be presenting at the Cameri Theater in Tel Aviv.
