Startup Next is a pre-accelerator program that helps startups perfect their pitches for investors, customers and accelerator programs like Techstars and Y-Combinator. The six week program is part of the larger Techstars network and is operated out of only 20 cities worldwide.
This is San Antonio's first ever Startup Next cohort. Over 30 companies applied, and seven were accepted to the program. Blake Yeager (Techstars Cloud Managing Director) and Luke Owen (Geekdom COO) manage San Antonio Startup Next and cover topics including pitching, customer development, market sizing, product/market fit and fundability.
