David Cohen’s TechStars program was officially announced today. Read more about it on Brad Feld’s blog, Colorado Startups and in the Boulder Daily Camera.

I’m participating in the program as a mentor, and I’m quite looking forward to it.

In brief, the program is designed to help folks with ideas turn them into businesses. Anyone can apply, and those accepted will get some seed money for the summer while they build their product, a chance to make great connections and ask questions and get some advice from folks who have real-life experience. Come, ask questions, learn from our mistakes. 😉

I think TechStars is going to be a fantastic opportunity. If you’ve got an idea you’d like to pursue, I highly recommend checking it out.
