“Techstars was a transformative experience for DigitalOcean. They provided us with life-long mentors and industry connections that continue to help us today. We understand first hand the challenges of bootstrapping your business from the ground up. Infrastructure is typically a large expense for businesses that begin to scale rapidly. We want to give back to the startup ecosystem and provide support by offering a $250,000 credit on DigitalOcean to enable the next generation of startups to succeed. We are truly excited to see what each new class of Techstars can build,” said Ben Uretsky, CEO of DigitalOcean.
