One-half of participants in newest “Techstars Atlanta” program are based in the city

“Techstars Atlanta” announced its newest cohort last week, and one-half of the participants are Atlanta-based, the highest percentage ever.

The 13-week accelerator program is a partnership between Techstars and Cox Enterprises, an Atlanta-headquartered media, communications and automotive giant. As noted in this recent article, the worldwide accelerator network operator is currently recruiting for the new “Techstars Industries of the Future Accelerator” based in the Knoxville-Oak Ridge region.

“This milestone highlights Atlanta’s growth in the venture ecosystem since we began our Techstars partnership in 2016,” Kim Mackenzie, Strategy and Corporate Development Director at Cox Enterprises, was quoted as saying in this Atlanta Inno article.
