Amsterdam-based startup Party with a Local has announced they have been selected into the Techstars Connection program. This renowned accelerator program has a reputation of being one of the best accelerators in the world, and only accepts ten startups out of a thousand applications. More importantly: Party with a local is only the third ever Dutch startup to get into the program so far, which is a nice validation for the Amsterdam startup scene.
Love to party?
Party with a Local is based on a simple idea: it connects people who love to party. Travellers can get to know a city much better if they experience it with a local than if they go by their travel guide book. According to founder Dan Fennessy, the app is like couchsurfing – but without the couch.
