SAN DIEGO'S TECHSTARS
Medical Education and Telemedicine Building at UC San Diego
Celebrating GEW: Global Entrepreneurship Week
This month hosts a panel of three Techstars graduates that are growing their business here in San Diego. Attendees will also have the opportunity to interact with San Diego's local incubators and accelerators during the networking portion of the program.
Al Bsharah, CEO of embarke, an email optimization platform

Techstars is one of the world's leading mentorship-driven seed stage accelerator programs. The selective program accepts 10 companies per city and offers them $18,000 in seed funding with an additional option for up to $100,000 in convertible debt from a group of prominent VC's. The highly selective program provides value through mentorship-driven connections and advice. Techstars companies go on to average more than $1.5M raised in outside capital after the program.
We'll be hearing from the Techstars grads about their experiences with the accelerator program, including: How did you get in? What was the biggest impact on your company? What does the future look like? And covering topics such as improving your deck, customer focused development, getting to beta and more! We'll also have a collection of San Diego's best incubators and co-working spaces presenting in the networking area.
