DNSFilter in Techstars!

Today marks a big day in the history of DNSFilter.

We have been itching to announce this — but DNSFilter is now officially a Techstars company!

For the past few months we have been going through a rigorous screening process which finally culminated with our acceptance in late December. It’s been extremely hard to keep tight lips about this!

In January I traveled to CES for some customer meetings and to finally meet our amazing Techstars directors — Managing Director, Ryan Kuder(@ryankuder) and our Program Director, Karina Costa. I also got to meet a fellow founding team — BioInteractive Technologies, who makes an awesome device called TENZR that turns your hand into a controller by monitoring activity of the tendons within your wrist!

However, the real fun started last week when I travelled to Los Angeles with my co-founders Brian Gillis and Mike Schroll. It was an incredible experience — from sleeping in bunk beds for the first time in 20 years to doing deep dives on KPI’s! We are positive this is going to be a great experience for us and help us take DNSFilter to the next level. I am also sure it will provide lots of suitable blog content.

To put things into perspective, here are some impressive stats about Techstarsand it’s network:

  • 1,188 Companies (89% Active or Acquired)
  • 5,307 Active Investors
  • 3,731 Active Mentors
  • 39 Current Programs in 25 Countries
  • Represent 1 out of 20 Series A Financing Rounds
  • Only accelerator to have a founding team IPO

Stay tuned as we continue along this journey!
