The world’s best startup accelerator helped to direct company focus, gather user feedback, and refine how metrics are analyzed – but the best takeaway from the program has been the people, says CEO Ben Uretsky. “Being at Techstars gave us the opportunity to build and strengthen relationships within our company, with potential employees, and with role model companies who can provide valuable advice on what works and what doesn’t.” We need to say a big thank you to Brad Gillespie and Jesse Beyroutey of IA Ventures for encouraging us to apply to Techstars. We would not have had the chance to be where we are today without that experience. More on DigitalOcean https://www.digitalocean.com/ More Techstars videos http://www.techstars.com/tv/
