TechStars is one of the best incubator programs in the world. Every year thousands of companies try to get in but only a select few make the cut. TechStars has expanded to 5 programs in New York, Boston, Seattle, Boulder and Cloud.

Companies in the program have a chance to work with over 75 VC firms for funding and the average TechStars graduate sees over $1 million in funding. Companies also get to work with some of the best mentors in the world including Dennis Crowley of Foursquare and Fred Wilson of Union Square Ventures.

There are some deadlines not to far out that everyone should be aware of if they want to get into the program. Unfortunately Boston has just passed but NYC and Boulder are right around the corner.

Final deadline – Jan 23rd, 2012

Boulder deadline:
