When: Wednesday, May 25, 15:00 - 17:00

Where: Platform6 startup house, Åkerlundinkatu 8, Tampere

Do you want to meet one of the largest investors in high-growth early stage companies by volume in the world? Then come to Stream Connect to learn about Techstars and get introduced to its Managing Director in Stockholm. This is going to help you a lot especially if you decide to apply for their programme as the application acceptance rates between 1% and 3%.

Each year, Techstars choose over 500 early-stage companies to join one of their 3-month, mentorship-driven accelerators, investing $120K and providing hands-on mentorship and access to the Techstars network for life. The primary value to the entrepreneur is derived from the mentoring, connections, and the recognition of being chosen to be a part of the accelerator. To put it shortly, startups get help with scaling their vision into a thriving business.
