Early in May, HelpSocial Developer, Chris Ramsey and I spent the weekend at the Big Data Code-a-thon.
You see, San Antonio gets its water from the Edwards Aquifer. The aquifer is a pretty amazing resource and according to the EAA website, “the Edwards Aquifer is the natural water resource that supports approximately 2 million people.” That’s a lot of people who rely on the Aquifer for the most basic of needs, but also for recreational and professional purposes.
With water becoming a global concern, it’s important to try and work things out on a local level. I don’t need to spout out word for word the challenges we face regarding water, I’ll let you Google that on your own.
As is common with rapid development, demand for water in the region has increased well beyond the Aquifer’s capacity to provide. In addition, there are a slew of other concerns from endangered species and economic development stemming from the increase in demand.
Since completing the Techstars Cloud program, our team is ready for expansion! We’re looking for talented people that have a passion for customer service, are motivated by opportunity and enjoy building and creating.
Here we are. Post three of three. If you made it this far, thanks for reading along. I hope these posts have offered some helpful insight. If you haven’t read the first two parts of this series, check them out. In them, I help set expectations for what the Techstars program feels like and what you’ll be doing for the 3 months. Today, I’ll finish up the series by sharing what we walked away from Techstars with. If you have any questions for our team, please reach out to us here. We would love to hear from you!
What did we get out of Techstars?
In the last post I covered what to expect from the Techstars experience. Today, here’s a view of what you’ll be doing during the program. Again, questions about the HelpSocial team’s experience are welcome! Contact us here.
Two months have gone by since we walked off the Demo Day stage for the Techstars Cloud program. My initial thought was to post a quick recap, but I realized I had so many views on what had just happened and I wanted to let it sink in a little. Instead of writing a short novel, I thought I’d break this up into three posts geared towards the entrepreneurs who are interested in going through an accelerator program like Techstars. The first, today’s post, is all about what to expect when you get accepted into Techstars. The next post will focus on what the day to day looks like. Finally, the third post will cover what we got out of it. Please ask questions – our team at HelpSocial would love to help!
So, what was the experience like with Techstars? What should you expect after you get accepted?
We are excited and proud to announce we’ve been accepted into the Techstars Cloud accelerator program!
