Since its founding in 2007, the Techstars Boulder program has helped more than 150 companies that have raised more than $1 billion to take their business to the next level. Entrepreneurs who have been part of the acceleration program include DigitalOcean and Sendgrid.
Recently, Techstars Boulder announced Colombian entrepreneur Andres Barreto as Managing Director of its acceleration program.

In that sense, Techstars Boulder is becoming remote to fund and support the best founders, wherever they are," says Andrés Barreto, Managing Director of Techstars Boulder.
