Have you ever wondered the impact a program like TechStars and their set of mentors could have on your startup?
Today’s guest is Brad Feld. Brad has been an early-stage investor and entrepreneur for the past twenty years. Prior to co-founding his current venture, Foundry Group, Brad co-founded TechStars, one of the top startup incubators in the world.
Today I am going to talk with Brad about the advice he gives early stage companies as well as what he looks for in a TechStars applicant.
Brad has been an early stage investor and entrepreneur for over twenty years. Prior to co-founding Foundry Group, he co-founded Mobius Venture Capital and, prior to that, founded Intensity Ventures, a company that helped launch and operate software companies. Brad is also a co-founder of TechStars.
Brad currently serves on the board of directors of BigDoor, Cheezburger Networks, Fitbit, Gnip, MakerBot, Oblong, Orbotix, and Standing Cloud for Foundry Group. Previously, Brad served as chief technology officer of AmeriData Technologies. AmeriData acquired Feld Technologies, a firm he founded in 1987 that specialized in custom software applications. Brad had grown Feld Technologies into one of Boston’s leading software consulting firms prior to the acquisition. He also directed the diversification into software consulting at AmeriData, a $1.5 billion publicly-traded company which was acquired by GE Capital in 1995.
