If you are a tenacious founder in the Southeast working hard on a problem that you love, we want to speak with you!

My name is Dave Payne and I’m the Managing Director of Techstars Atlanta. Prior to Techstars I founded a venture-backed startup and a startup hub in Atlanta. My official background is . My unofficial background is .

While we’ll consider great founders located anywhere in the world, our particular focus is , so we have scheduled Meet and Greets all over the Southeast during the next 10 weeks.

Let’s Talk!

The best way to learn about and get into our program is to engage with us while applications are open. We’ve provided lots of ways to do this.

Over the next 10 weeks we’ll be visiting 17 cities across the Southeast.

Meet and Greets are group sessions in a local startup hub. Office hours are one-on-one meetings to share details of what you’re working on and learn more about the accelerator.

If we aren’t able to meet-up in person when we are nearby, we’ve also scheduled some Open Office Hours in Atlanta and one virtual AMA (see below).

If nothing else works, please and we’ll get back to you.

And when you are ready, you can find the Techstars Atlanta application .

We look forward to meeting you!
