Sarah Cochrane: Techstars Accelerator Programme
Techstars is the world's number one startup accelerator programme which provides seed funding and intensive expert mentorship as part of a three-month bootcamp. Startups lucky enough to be picked from the thousands of applicants relocate to one of the US city locations or London for the duration.
Sarah Cochrane is a Techstars alumna now living in the Midlands who co-founded vetinary healthcare startup VetCloud which was part of the Techstars London class of 2013. Sarah will describe what she learnt from the Techstars programme, and how it's helping her in her current job.
As ever, there will be an opportunity to network freely with other attendees after the talk.
Time and Place: DMU Innovation Centre, 10am-Midday, Weds 19th Nov
NB: Suppliers of directly relevant business services who are willing to help build the community rather than hard-sell are welcome to attend.
