Nicole Glaros says we have over 150 companies in our portfolio
1218_ 6/6/12 - We've run into an 'old friend', she's not old but a long time friend and familiar to nearly everyone in Boulder and Denver. We're talking with Nicole Glaros, the Managing Director of Boulder TechStars. Nicole says as the managing director she has the wonderful opportunity of working with 10-12 teams a year, giving them a little bit of seed capital and a whole bunch of mentorship to take them to the next level. Of course, w3w3® has met and interviewed a number of TechStar alumnus here at GlueCon. TechStar teams are here from Boulder, but also TechStars Cloud, which is their first thematic program. Larry recalled interviewing David Cohen just a few months before TechStar One. He asked Nicole what has changed over the years? "Oh Wow!" said Nicole. "We started off in Boulder, the first program was in 2007. Since then we've launched four more programs, Boston, Seattle, New York and now TechStar-Cloud which is based in San Antonio. We also have a book and there was a TV show last year. We've got our web series and it has been going great!" Larry asked what she thought we might see in the future with TechStars. Nicole said, "We are committed to helping entrepreneurs get to the next level of growth and being a value add for investors as well. Continuing to focus on that any number of things can happen." Nicole has been with TechStars since almost the beginning. She was there when it was just one office in Boulder and, she said, "It's been really fun to see the program grow and mature. Now we have over 150 companies in our portfolio now. So we've just created a massive network of entrepreneurs across the country and the world as well - it's been a lot of fun!"
