Jess Williamson

Director of Techstars

Jess has been with Techstars since announcing the organization’s first accelerator outside the US, and as a runaway Californian she’s been living in the European tech community the past ten years. Adventures included two startups in Scotland, joining to run Springboard accelerator in Cambridge, and merging to become Techstars London in 2013. The past few years have been focused on establishing their fintech programme with Barclays across 4 continents, and she now works on building up any new Techstars accelerators in EMEA + APAC including Techstars Adelaide, Techstars Paris, and accelerators with METRO and SAP.iO. She is obsessed with blue and hence tweets from @jessinblue.
