Techstars, a global pre-seed investor, is relaunching the Techstars Workforce Development Accelerator, to invest in mission-driven technology startups transforming the future of work.
To this end, Strada Education Foundation, an organization committed to strengthening the connection between education and opportunity, is returning as a partner to the program which was originally launched in 2020, joined by new partner World Education Services (WES), a non-profit social enterprise that supports the educational, economic, and social inclusion of immigrants, refugees, and international students.
Techstars Workforce Development will invest in mission-driven startups that maximize human potential through work, education, and economic mobility solutions. Calling on both Strada and WES’ expertise in creating more equitable pathways, the program will empower the next generation of socially-minded entrepreneurs focused on career path discovery, education, support, navigation, and employer solutions.
The 13-week accelerator program will be hybrid, allowing founders the flexibility to participate both in-person in Denver and remotely at various points throughout the duration of the program. This ensures the program remains accessible to a diverse range of startups and entrepreneurs, regardless of their stage, circumstances, or location.
Startups interested in the program are encouraged to visit Techstars Workforce Development Accelerator to learn more. Applications for the upcoming program will be accepted through March 6, 2024 at 11:59pm PST.
