Brad is considered the godfather of the accelerator movement and TechStars is one of the oldest and most successful accelerator’s in the world. We look forward to hearing Brad’s thoughts on how accelerators drive local economic growth in a community.

We are also especially delighted to announce that the first 100 attendees at Pitch Day will receive a free copy of Brad’s latest book, Startup Communities [Amazon], which outlines the grand social experiment that Brad and other entrepreneurs and accelerator founders have begun to turn their cities, large or small, into hotbeds of innovation, re-investment and economic growth, driven by startups.
