Since day one, our goal was to compete globally, whatever it took. This requires extraordinary skills and experience (plus, maybe a bit of luck and timing). The Attentive team was ready to put the pedal to the metal!
Throughout 2016, as we were developing our business, we had the chance to meet some Techstars alumni. They were incredibly supportive of a 4-person company from Portugal, without a single expectation of anything in return. #Givefirst is not just nice thing to say or a catchy marketing slogan, it’s something that all Techstars alumni believe, cherish and encourage.
After experiencing it first hand, we had no doubt that this was the mentor-driven philosophy we wanted for our company.
Ten years ago, Techstars started in Boulder. Now, with over 25 programs spread around the world, there’s definitely a special vibe here 🙂
Also, we know that in Boulder we’ll encounter the right mix of alumni in the SaaS/Enterprise space, that we can learn a lot from (FullContact is a great example). And that is our main priority for this program.
Here are a few additional reasons why we picked Boulder (we took this picture at a shop in Pearl St, Boulder):
We’re sure our company is going to be very different in three months, by the end of the program. We’re coming with no biased ideas.
The only thing we can promise is to work harder than we ever did to deploy our vision.
We also want to send a big thank you to Karina: without her guidance and mentorship, this opportunity wouldn’t be possible!
