TechStars NY has announced the 14 chosen startups for its Spring 2012 class. The three month accelerator will begin Wednesday at the new TechStars office on 36 Cooper Square.
More than 30 new mentors were added to the program and 1,500 startups applied. Nearly half of the companies have women founders; there are five female CEOs. Nine of the companies currently operate out of NYC. The rest will be relocating, including one startup from Amsterdam and another from Vancouver.
Founders range from an angel investor in Twitter to a senior at Notre Dame, an Oscar nominee, a four time founder and a 3-time applicant of the program.
