November 16-18, 2022

Techstars Foundercon is returning November 16-18 in Oakland, California, and we hope to see you there — in person!

It's been nearly three years since the Techstars community united under one roof to connect with founders, access exclusive content and events, and leverage the power of the Techstars Network. This year, Techstars is taking over Downtown Oakland so you can reunite with your program class or engage with founders during our Founder Fest reception, over a food truck lunch, or throughout the event in our networking lounge.

We know markets are shifting and the future may look stormy right now. That means it’s more important than ever to lean into the Techstars community and help founders amplify their resilience through the power of connection at Foundercon in November.

Here are just a few of the sessions and topics bringing together people from every corner of the Techstars network — new and seasoned program graduates, investors, mentors, partners, and others.

  • Fundraising during a Downturn
  • Fintech Trends
  • ESG Investor Lens
  • Growing and Scaling in Health
  • The Future of Web3
  • Making Sense of Corporate VCs
  • Deep Tech and the future of Entertainment
  • Mental Health and Wellness
  • Founder Stories

Hear from these renowned experts at Foundercon:

  • Paul Daversa, known as “The Headhunter” in Silicon Valley, shares best practices around hiring and talent
  • SC Moatti and Claus Moberg speak about building winning products
  • Mitch and Freada Kapor on the power of diversity
  • Antonio Neves, Brad Feld, David Cohen, and more!
