Founded in 2006 in Boulder, Colorado‚ Techstars runs some of the top accelerator programs in the United States for entrepreneurial technology companies and technology entrepreneurs.

The Stanley+Techstars Additive Manufacturing Accelerator Program is an intensive three-month program that will give the entrepreneur participants a chance to develop business relationships to build their companies. Participants will have access to a significant group of mentors who can help the entrepreneurs accelerate their business growth. Our mentors include investors, seasoned entrepreneurs, and executives from a broad range of businesses. The program will culminate with an opportunity for the participants to attend a “Demo Day” event, where participants will have the opportunity to present their business plan and ideas to investors, venture capital groups, executives and others, in an effort to raise funds to continue building their companies.
