About Opportunity

Applications are now open for the Techstars Accelerators Program to provide equitable access, funding, and support for entrepreneurs who are Black, Hispanic and Latino, Indigenous American, and/or Pacific Islander who represent the diversity of their nation.

Industry agnostic, the Techstars Detroit program builds on the unique strengths of Detroit’s startup & innovation ecosystem through game-changing investment community partnerships and together they will take steps towards dismantling institutional, structural, and systematic barriers that often limit opportunities.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Techstars funds all types of startups, working in all verticals, using any type of business models. Do keep in mind, however, that the focus is on startups rather than small businesses.
  • Techstars wants to be viewed as a co-founder. They don’t want any special or controlling interests in your company. They won’t ask for a board seat or for any uncommon investor rights. You will still run the show.
  • The primary language that they use in verbal and written communications during all accelerator programs—in every country—is English.
  • They provide financial support to organizations committed to increasing diversity in entrepreneurship.

Benefits

  • Access to Techstars resources for life;
  • Acceleration in a 90-day Techstars mentorship-driven accelerator program with personal mentorship and office space;
  • Lifetime access to the Techstars worldwide network of entrepreneurs, including more than 10,000 mentors, 10,000 investors, 1,600 alumni companies, and over 200 staff members;
  • Access to over $400k of cash equivalent hosting, accounting, and legal support—plus other credits and perks worth more than $5M;
  • Demo Day exposure and other investor connections.
