The title of his talk will be: '10 REASONS TO DO AN ACCELERATOR'

For those of you that don't already know, Techstars is one of the most renowned and selective accelerators in the world (with <1% companies accepted onto the program). Its incredible mentors includes Foursquare CEO Dennis Crowley, Tumblr CEO David Karp and Fred Wilson of Union Square Ventures. Accepted founders participate in a three-month program culminating in what is one of the tech world's most exciting days of the year, the Demo Day.

Previously Jon was the co-founder and CEO of Springboard which subsequently merged with Techstars. In addition, he has also founded ignite100, a re-invention of the Difference Engine that was Europe's first accelerator bootcamp, Startup Wise Guys in Estonia, Eleven in Bulgaria and TexDrive in Moscow.

In a previous life, Jon trained as an accountant with Arthur Andersen, and subsequently has worked in various start-ups and turnarounds. He has worked in London, throughout Europe, Australia and also the United States.

As usual, format will be 30 mins talk followed by 30 mins Q+A. Maybe time to meet him after.
