Techstars is excited to announce its Network Engagement Partnership with QBE Insurance Group. As one of the world’s largest international insurance carriers, QBE is uniquely positioned to support entrepreneurs who participate in Techstars global programs.

The Techstars Network Engagement Program creates opportunities for Corporate Partners to gain access to the Techstars worldwide network of entrepreneurs and build strategic relationships with startups, founders, mentors, and investors to advance their business innovation goals. Partners will refine their corporate innovation methodologies through the program’s targeted portfolio reviews and proprietary innovation tool kits. The program is geared toward corporate partners who are interested in startup engagement for proofs of concept, investments, or mergers and acquisitions.

“By partnering with Techstars, we’re able to take advantage of their proven ability to source and support the world’s most promising startup founders and help them achieve lift-off through initial investment, business development, and mentoring. Through local engagement with QBE subject-matter expertise and leaders, we hope to provide a strong network of mentors and supporters to help Techstars entrepreneurs succeed—at every stage of their journey,” says Ted Stuckey, Managing Director of QBE Ventures.
