This morning 11 companies completely kicked ass at the TechStars Boulder DemoDay 2012. They all nailed their pitches, but pitches are just for show (and raising money — which they all seem to be doing at an incredible rate). It’s really much more impressive to think about the progress and execution that took place over the past 13 weeks.
I had quite a unique view of the program and couldn’t be more happy and excited for these companies going forward. I spent the first 6 weeks of the program in the trenches with all the founders and learned more than I ever thought I would. After spending the last half of the program back in NYC and out of touch with the founders and companies, I am totally blown away by all they progress they made.
They make it look so easy up there on stage, but the endless hours that were spent at the TechStars office and all those sleep deprived nights made this possible. I’m glad I got the opportunity to get to know you all and thrilled to see you blow people away at Demo Day today.
I expect some incredible stuff out of these teams in the years to come. And in case you’re keeping score at home, here’s today’s amazing lineup.
