Today, my guest is Ryan Kuder.
Ryan is the Managing Director at Techstars Anywhere.
Techstars is a global startup accelerator with a combined market cap of over $18B. They’ve funded companies like DigitalOcean, ClassPass, Bench, Plated, Localytics and SendGrid, which was acquired for $3B.
Traditionally, the Techstars accelerator programs are city specific, but Ryan is in year 3 of an experiment to operate the program remotely with the founders who are accepted.
Ryan is a 17-year tech veteran, having served as both a founder of several startups, and an executive at many more, including ecoATM.
To round out his career even more, Ryan previously held marketing and product roles at both Yahoo and eBay.
Speaking personally, I can tell you that Ryan is like a poo poo platter of startup wisdom and experience and I’m thrilled share our conversation with you today.
