Techstars Starts Push For LA Healthcare Accelerator Applications

Startup accelerator operator Techstars is making a big push to enroll startups in its new, Los Angeles-based startup accelerator, the Techstars Healthcare Accelerator, saying it is launching a nationwide tour to talk to prospective startups about the accelerator. The accelerator--which will be the second for Techstars in Los Angeles--is being run at Cedars Sinai. Techstars is visiting Berkeley, Austin, Boston, and New York--in addition to running an event in Los Angeles--through December, to drum up interest in the startup accelerator program.
