This morning Techstars, a network of startup accelerators and a venture capital fund, announced that Maëlle Gavet is its new CEO. Gavet, who said she was brought aboard to help Techstars grow, detailed her work experience at prior roles in companies of greater scale and multiple geographies, including Compass and Booking.com. Gavet said that she had asked the same question to Techstars when she was being recruited for her new role. Gavet told TechCrunch that Techstars has invested in over 2,300 companies and is putting capital into around 500 yearly. TechCrunch regularly covers accelerator cohorts, including Techstars (some recent notes here) and Y Combinator, among other programs.
