ANZ Innovyz Start Accelerator


What's better than being asked to go to Australia for a week to mentor a bunch of start up entrepreneurs?  Getting selected to actually BE one of the start up entrepreneurs!

The ANZ Innovyz Start Accelerator, which is part of the Global Accelerator Network and "Championed by TechStars" has selected ten companies to meet up in Adelaide, Australia.  They will receive mentoring and support, and hopefully they will all grow into successful, job-producing, successful, cool companies. 

Most of the companies are from Australia, but one, Cipher This, is from right here in Boulder, Colorado.  I'm so excited to be participating as a mentor, and I thank Jana Matthews and all the other mentors who have made this possible.

Congratulations, and I can't wait to meet you in person this summer!
