Target & Techstars to Launch Retail Accelerator in Minneapolis

September 18, 2015

Target and Techstarts have announced a partnership on a new accelerator program focused on retail innovation. Target and Techstars are committed to inviting the most promising and innovative entrepreneurs to Minneapolis to create the best new technology in the retail industry.

The Techstars Retail Accelerator, in partnership with Target, will launch next year and will open the doors to any startup that aspires to improve the retail experience, whether online, in-store or a combination of both.

The partnership, which will seek innovations that address all aspects of retail, will have a powerful impact on the Minneapolis / Twin Cities startup community. The area was recently named by Forbes as one of the fastest growing for tech jobs in the U.S. and Target’s investment in building the startup community will only accelerate this growth.

The Techstars program, a three-month, immersive, mentorship-driven startup accelerator, will be based near Target’s headquarters in downtown Minneapolis, MN. Important application dates will be announced before the end of the year along with further details.

For founders who want more information before applications open, contact retail@techstars.com.
