Introducing the 10 Companies for the Chicago Fall 2015 Class

The entire Techstars Chicago team (Troy, Brian, Dan, George, Matt) is excited to introduce you to our 2015 class.

We had nearly a thousand applicants and interviewed hundreds of companies before selecting our final 10. Each year, our selection process gets harder and harder, and we’re so grateful to all of the companies that pour their heart into applying to Techstars. Thanks to each of you.

While many of our class were born and bred in the midwest of the U.S., some of the companies hail from India, Spain and Canada, and all bring their collective talent, passion and character to this year’s program. Our B2B companies are diving deep into fintech, advertising & marketing, productivity & collaboration, and operational effectiveness. Our B2C companies are helping people save time, stay up to date and have more fun.
