Techstars is an internationally recognized accelerator that supports entrepreneurs and helps boost their early-stage businesses and product development efforts through focused education, mentorship and funding.
Cox Enterprises President and CEO Alex Taylor had long wanted to establish a global technology hub in the already diverse and emerging Atlanta start-up ecosystem. And in 2016, the first cohort of Techstars Atlanta was born.
For 90 days, 10 startups work in a creative space in the heart of midtown Atlanta, receiving expert counsel and support from a network of more than 100 local mentors — including dozens of Cox employees. The program concludes with a Demo Day presentation, during which the companies pitched their business ideas to Cox executives and a crowd of more than 800.
