Earlier this year, Techstars and Stanley Black&Decker announced the Stanley+Techstars Additive Manufacturing Accelerator that would take up resident in downtown Hartford. The first cohort of startups came from across the globe to hear from mentors, founders, and experts on how to effectively grow their businesses. On Thursday October 11th, members of the first cohort will present their companies at Demo Day in Hartford to show off everything they learned.
In September CVG hosted one of our monthly Investor, Entrepreneur & Resource Network event in conjunction with the Stanley+Techstars Additive Manufacturing Accelerator. While there, we had a chance to speak with the accelerators Managing Director Claudia Reuter and Stanley VP of Business Development Marty Guay about the impact this accelerator has on the startups, the local community, and the state as a whole.
