Mark Solon

Managing Director

I’m part of an incredible team of people at TechStars, which we believe to be the most important startup accelerator in the world. We’re empowering entrepreneurs worldwide with the tools and the network to succeed wherever they want to live. Prior to Techstars, I helped build Highway 12 Ventures, a terrific early-stage venture capital firm which focused on investing in early-stage technology startups in the mountain west. I’ve lived in Boise, Idaho for a long time now and no place has ever felt more like home. I love so many things about this small town, none more so than running, biking or skiing in our beautiful mountains.

I’m in awe of the people that I get to work with every day. I didn’t grow up in the startup technology community, but for twenty plus years I’ve been fortunate to have the opportunity to work with some of the most driven and creative people in the world. To be included in that small part of the universe has been enlightening and incredibly rewarding for me.
