A while back, Brad Feld asked Don and I to be mentors for TechStars. (Don was a mentor last year as well.) The list of mentors is impressive (my participation notwithstanding!), and the overall program is a fantastic idea. In short: 10 startups get picked from among hundreds, receive seed funding, and get access to dozens of mentors who’ve been through the start-up cycle before. (More details here.)
I’ll be in Boulder in early June along with Don and Dick to share some stories about what worked (and what didn’t) at FeedBurner and life at Google, and am eager to get involved. Do you think your new idea is the Next Best Thing? You have two weeks left to apply. Get to it!
