Accepted HackStars will be paid $6,000 to work with any or all of the participating startups over the course of the three-month program.
This makes a lot of sense. Startups are always looking for more software engineers, so having extra hackers around will be a big asset for TechStars companies. For unproven coders, this could provide a great way into the startup world. The companies will get a firsthand look at what they can do without any up-front risk; the hope is that the program will end up matching engineers and companies for permanent jobs down the line.
Of course, that all depends on TechStars being able to do what these startups struggle to: find talented coders who don’t have something else going already.
