We have over 60 different Techstars companies in NYC.
They are building great businesses ranging from 3rd largest web hosting provider in the world (Digital Ocean) to a small team working to provide an API to scientific knowledge (Standard Analytics).
While the companies are all in different stages, they all face the same issue – recruiting talented folks to join them and help build and scale the businesses.
As the Managing Director here at Techstars, I help the companies in any way I can. Recruiting is one of the most, if not the most, pressing issue they are facing. That’s why I am committing to helping them do that on the ongoing basis.
Jobs listings are all made equal, but the companies aren’t. We know that the Techstars companies stand for highest qualities startups you can find in NYC. Thats why whether you are an engineer or an MBA or an aspiring entrepreneur or an anxious corporate executive, we want to make the case for why you should consider joining a Techstars company.
