We are a network of the most respected accelerators around the world. GAN accelerators provide startups with the resources necessary to create and grow businesses, wherever they are.
In 2010, two co-founders of TechStars—Brad Feld and David Cohen—had the grand idea to connect the top mentorship-driven, seed-stage accelerators around the world. At the time, TechStars was becoming more well-known and accelerators were popping up everywhere. Alongside the White House’s Startup America Initiative, we launched to align top accelerators and create a standardized model for their success.
