TechStars Austin Announces First Class

Startup incubation program TechStars has announced the first, ten participants in its new Austin program, which is being run out of the Capital Factory incubator. TechStars--which set up here in May, has selected Filament Labs, MarketVibe, Fosbury, Atlas Wristband, AuMani, Ube, ProductGram, Testlio, Accountable, and ProtoExchange for its program. The three month program follows the pattern of TechStars other startup accelerator efforts nationwide, helping those companies to shape their companies, create a prototype or early version of their product, and pitch that to investors.
