Some people are rock-stars, others are movie-stars. Weā€™re Tech Stars šŸ’«

We have been legally required to keep our mouths shut about this for monthsā€¦ until yesterday when the embargo was lifted! šŸ™Œ

The TechStars Accelerator accepted 8base to its Austin, TX chapterā€™s winter cohort, alongside nine other awesome companies. The party started yesterday, and several of 8baseā€™s team members are already on-site in Austin. Everything will run until early March when the program finishes with an epic Demo Day that leads into the South-by-Southwest Festival (SXSW).ā€

About Techstarsā€

Techstars is one of the top startup accelerator programs in the world and has a 1-2% acceptance rate. Theyā€™ve helped approximately 1,900 companies raise upwards of $7.6 billion in funding and create over $22 billion of market capitalization.

The two most valued Techstarsā€™ companies are developer-focused, just like 8base! They are SendGrid, an email marketing API company acquired by Twilio in 2019 for $3 billion and Digital Ocean, a cloud computing company that is a unicorn, worth more than $1 billion.

Itā€™s going to be a fast-paced and exciting 3 months. That said, weā€™re going to be heads-down working hard to take 8base to the next level. Weā€™re excited to say that weā€™ve decided to (jokingā€¦ this is mandatory at TechStars šŸ˜…) begin sharing weekly updates about our experience in the program and progress as a company.ā€

Stay tuned for the adventure to come!ā€

Happy Developing :)
