Five Colorado startups will move in to the Techstars office space this week as part of a three-month accelerator program:

Airstream Health: A Denver-based company creating an alternative health care plan for self-insured employers.

Blank Slate Systems: A Boulder startup helping simplify the printing of complicated products through cloud-based storage and sketching technology.

IronCore Labs: A Boulder company providing encryption for developers for better security on cloud-based applications.

Sitter: An ‘Uber for babysitters,’ this Boulder app helps parents find, book and pay babysitters.

Stateless: A Boulder startup that provides software network functions to companies without installing or maintaining hardware.

The other eight startups in the class include Attentive, Candl, Data Nerds, Global EIR, Hardbound, Monday, PreFix and Rodin.

Techstars is a three-month program where startup founders gain momentum through mentoring, networking and access to funding.

This year, each startup will have access to $120,000 in funding. This is its 11th class since Techstars started in 2007, with some programs running twice per year–in fall and spring. Techstars requires companies to work onsite in Boulder during the program.

Natty Zola, managing director at Techstars, said the class will go from Jan. 23 through April 19.
