David Cohen with the Techstars IoT class

This week we announced the 12 companies joining the IoT program in NYC.

So, how did we get here?

First we cultivate
We visited loads of cities, meeting with founders and hosting events around the world: Berlin, Paris, London, Barcelona, San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Toronto, Hong Kong, Singapore, Mexico City, Austin, Boston, New Orleans, Tel Aviv, Munich, Madrid, Dublin and more!

Then we engage
We met with 500 founders in person or virtually over the past 5 months. Some we met twice or three times. We introduced many of them to our network, our alumni, and our mentors to get further acquainted.

Finally we select!
