Techstars to host second live AMA event to answer questions about their 2019 investment focus on additive manufacturing and sustainable tech.

On April 3rd 2019, Techstars and Stanley Black & Decker will host a live AMA (Ask me Anything) to provide a platform for startups and industry experts to ask questions about their upcoming accelerator. This second AMA will allow startups to learn more about how the Stanley Ventures divisions considers investment.

Applications are currently open for the 2019 STANLEY+Techstars Accelerator. Scheduled to start in July 2019, the accepted companies receive up to $120,000.00 in funding, access to over $1M in additional resources, access to world-class mentors including executives, founders, investors and technical experts, and life-long membership in the Techstars network.

While Techstars posts their FAQs right on their website, they understand that founders will often want to ask questions directly to program leadership.  For their second AMA you will have an opportunity to have all of your questions answered by: 

  • Claudia Reuter, Managing Director, STANLEY+Techstars Accelerator
  • Martin Guay, Vice President Business Development, Stanley Black & Decker
  • Michael Mahan, Managing Director, Stanley Ventures

The stats on Techstars companies are pretty well-known. With over 1600 investments, and exits including Amazon’s recent$1B acquisition of Pillpack and the IPO of SendGrid and its subsequent $3B acquisition by Twilio, accepted companies will find themselves in good company. Looking more closely at the ten companies who recently completed the 2018 STANLEY + Techstars Program provides another view of the potential for accepted companies. Of the 10 companies, most are in the process of finalizing additional capital and expanding their businesses, and 4 of them have already received follow on investment directly from the STANLEY Ventures team. 

Industry giants like Stanley Black & Decker have recognized that startups with solutions in additive manufacturing or sustainable tech have the potential to transform the industry and the world.  The AMA is a chance for those looking to make an impact to learn more.
