The program is a full-time, 3 month program in Berlin. There may be some longer content breaks throughout, but you’ll be expected to spend most of your time in Berlin.
It is a big decision to leave behind your family and company, if it is based in a city other than Berlin, for an extended period of time. Of course, you’re welcome to bring some team and family members with you!
We are extremely appreciative and understanding of the sacrifices founders sometimes make to join a Techstars accelerator. We’re also human, and are aware life and family situations can arise at any moment. We will try to be as accommodating as possible when these things happen, but cannot say with 100% certainty that we will be able to reschedule if you miss a workshop or meeting.
Things will also come up last minute throughout the program, and it’s up to you to be flexible in your schedule and do what you can to join in. Even if they’re last minute, you never know how valuable a session might be. And we’ve asked them to come in because we think it is valuable.
I’d suggest you plan out most of your trips before the program begins, and provide us with your timetable in advance. This way, we can have a heads up as to when you might be away or travelling and can schedule accordingly. Even though there’s only one of you, we’re managing 10x as the program runs!
