TechStars is a mentorship driven investment fund founded by David Cohen, Brad Feld, Jared Polis and David Brown. Ten teams of entrepreneurs were selected from nearly 400 teams who applied to the program. These ten teams have spent the summer in Boulder, Colorado in this startup bootcamp, learning from more than fifty top entrepreneurs from Colorado and beyond. They've attended more than forty organized sessions that have focused on the issues faced by early stage technology companies. Each team has also formed deep relationships with lead mentors who have helped them to shape their ideas and bring them to life this summer.
The ten startups are: GYMINEE, a premier fitness social network for detailed tracking, online accountability and motivation.
