Ten technology startups will converge this summer in Boulder as TechStars teams, the Boulder County Business Report is reporting on its Web site today.
Many of the new teams aren’t yet incorporated as companies, BCBR reports, and some don’t even have names or Web sites. TechStars also has launched its own blog to track what's going on with the new startup teams. TechStars founders David G. Cohen, Brad Feld, Jared Polis and David Brown are funding each team with up to $15,000 in exchange for 5 percent equity. Teams are scheduled to start arriving in Boulder early this summer.
