Nicole Glaros serves as a Director on Simple Energy’s Board of Directors.
Nicole got her entrepreneurial start at a young age, orchestrating cousins into theatrical plays and charging neighbors admission. She’s done a handful of startups since then, 2 of which were losses and 1 win. Since then, she’s spent over a decade mentoring and funding early stage web software companies in Colorado, NYC, Texas, and beyond.
She is currently the Head of Product at Techstars, a startup accelerator based out of Boulder, CO, and a Managing Director at Techstars Ventures. She’s been with Techstars since the early days in 2009 and has seen it grow from our one small humble office to 9 offices across the globe. She has run 6 programs, and has nearly 70 companies in her portfolio, and is honored and privileged to work with some of the smartest and humblest people in the venture and startup world.
In addition to working with startups, Nicole is on the Board of Directors for the Application Developers Alliance and the Entrepreneur’s Foundation of Colorado. She is on the advisory board for the University of Colorado’s Venture Fund, the Global Accelerator Network, and Kangu.org.
Entrepreneur Magazine named Nicole One of the Most 7 Powerful Women to Watch, Business Insider named her one of the Coolest People in New York Tech and an Extraordinary Woman in New York Tech, and Marie Clare named her one of the NewGuard.
Nicole is married to the love of her life and has 2 young children under 5 who still don’t sleep through the night. But they keep her :honest, playful, and acutely aware of how short life is.”
