Heidi Allstop of Spill will be moving to Boston this summer after being selected for TechStars. Techstars is one of the top two seed accelerators in the United States and just closed it’s newest class. Heidi will be joining 10 other startups that made the cut. Techstars startups have an incredibly high track record of success compared to startups that don’t go through an accelerator, so it’s a huge honor for Heidi to be picked. From the link:
Spill [creates] an anonymous, peer-to-peer support system for college students. Ten schools are already using it. The founders suggest that students will more readily talk about difficult issues — whether drug use or loneliness — if they don’t have to go to a counseling center in person. Team is from Madison, Wisconsin, and plans to sell the service to universities as a way to better understand the mental health and environmental stresses students are dealing with.
While we’re sad to sere Heidi leaving Madison for Boston, we’re all excited for her to represent Madison in Techstars! Congrats and good luck in Boston!
