Techstars Starburst Aerospace Accelerator alums described how they use AI, VR, and other platforms at our Digital LA – Space Tech Startup panel via Zoom on Sep 21.
The four founders described how they started their companies, benefitted from Techstars accelerator which went virtual this year, how they have adapted to pandemic, and their next steps.
They all just pitched at the Techstars Starburst Demo Day earlier in the month. This event gives them an opportunity to describe themselves in more detail.
This is the Techstars Starburst Accelerator’s second class. Last year’s first class held its demo day at the California Science Center in Downtown LA with banquet under the Endeavor Space Shuttle. See our article.
