The much anticipated Techstars Retail Accelerator in partnership with Target took a big step forward today by revealing the startups that will be relocating to Minneapolis this summer for their inaugural class.
This verticalized collaboration came together last fall to “focus on bringing new technology, experiences, products, and solutions to retail,” and is driven by Managing Director Ryan Broshar working with Target’s own Entrepreneurs in Residence. It’s the first of a three year committment.
Selected from 500+ applications, these 10 startups will begin their three-month intensive startup acceleration on Monday, June 20th and culminate in demo day on September 20th during Twin Cities Startup Week. Notably, half of the chosen ones are led by female founders, while none of them are from Minnesota.
