Last week, we heard that three Portland startups had been selected for Techstars programs. This week, we heard that a fourth Portland startup, Caravel, had been picked to participate in a third program, Techstars Seattle.
Techstars Seattle, the third version of Techstars after Boulder and Boston, has graduated 110 companies since 2010. Alumni of the accelerator — companies such as Remitly, Outreach, Skilljar, Bizible, Leanplum and Zipline — have collectively raised nearly $1.2 billion in investment capital. Techstars Seattle is part of a larger Techstars network that includes 50 programs across the globe and also features a Techstars venture capital fund and a startup studio model.
For more information on this class, see the GeekWire coverage.
And I’ll be planning to head up there for Techstars Demo Day if you’re interested in joining along.
[Full disclosure: Caravel is also part of the current PIE class. I am the cofounder and general manager of PIE.]
