Last week Techstars held their 2014 Boston Demo Day to celebrate the 12 startup companies graduating the accelerator program. According to the team, one of the awesome characteristics about this year’s class is that it’s one of the most international classes out of Boston to date.

Companies came from Australia, Russia, France, Croatia, Hong Kong, and even domestic lands like San Francisco and Boston. These startups bring a geographically diverse mix to the Boston tech ecosystem, and their ideas are enticing.

“It’s been an honor and a privilege working with these founders over the past few months, and I’m excited for them to show off all their progress,” says Semyon Dukach, Managing Director of Techstars Boston.

Techstars Boston is increasingly attracting international companies who are accelerating their success in this wonderful city.
