Yesterday the news broke that PillPack is being acquired by Amazon for $1 Billion.
I’m incredibly happy for TJ Parker and Elliot Cohen, co-founders of the pharmaceutical delivery startup. They started the company at Techstars in Boston in February 2013, and raised $4 Million around the time they completed the accelerator program. A couple years ago at a Techstars Q&A they discussed how their respective backgrounds led to the founding of the company, and described some of their early experiences with raising money.
Through their hard work and dedication, these founders have taken PillPack from an innovative idea to a $1 Billion company.
It’s always such an honor to be able to use Techstars’ worldwide network to help entrepreneurs succeed. Congratulations TJ and Elliot, and thank you for letting all of us here at Techstars be a part of your journey thus far!
