This is a bitter sweet post for me. The 2014 Techstars class was my last. After 8 programs it was time to tackle new challenges at Techstars. But I left the program in the great and capable hands of Zach Nies & Natty Zola, two people I’ve known for a long time that were made for this role.
Well yesterday, they announced the class of 2015! If feels weird not to be at the helm of it anymore, but at the same time, it’s freeing. Now I get to work with the startups and not have all the associated distractions of running a program. Anyway, please join me in welcoming the class of 2015.
