Techstars doubles down on impact with new accelerator



The global startup network has already supported companies like Texas-based Fig Loans, a lender for low-income borrowers, and ZipLine, which delivers blood by drone to remote clinics in Rwanda.

Techstars will begin taking applications in December for a new impact accelerator in Austin, Texas that will focus on startups in financial services, healthcare, education, agriculture and energy.

Zoe Schlag, founder and CEO of UnLtd USA, will join Techstars as managing director of the program, which will open its doors in June 2018.
