Huffington Post for Techstars
January 6, 2016
As with any Techstars program, there are 5 factors we pay really close attention to in our applications: Team, team, team, product, market. Team is everything. Who are they? Why are they doing this? How do they work together? Can they lead? Do they have the experience and commitment to make this work? If the team is strong, the rest will click. Some of our most successful companies such as Sphero came in with a strong team, abandoned the product they originally applied with, and hit a home run in program with something new.
