Techstars for Social Impact is a three-month program that provides virtual mentoring, funding and global connections to 10 for-profit, mission-driven companies. Strategic mentorships with Cox business leaders and experts help bring the entrepreneurs' ideas to market, boost their early-stage businesses and grow their networks. This year's class kicked off Jan. 25 and the entrepreneurs will pitch their company's ideas to potential investors at a Demo Day presentation April 29.
