While ex-Railsonfire first moved from Vienna to Berlin and became Codeship, the company is now based in Boston. Codeship has actually become a part of TechStars’ Spring Boston 2013. class that began yesterday. The Boston programme has over 100 mentors, including the Foundry Group’s Brad Feld and 57 alumni companies so far with Katie Rae as its Managing Director.

The move to Boston marks another important change in Codeship‘s development as the team announced becoming a Seedcamp startup earlier this year, as well as supporting added technologies besides Rails, including PHP and Python. Co-founder Moritz Plassnig told us then that they were talking both to business angels and VC funds – it seems that TechStars was their final decision to move to the US. TechStars’ alumni such as developer-focused companies like SendGrid should help Codeship extend its offering to developers in the US. The local presence in the US will make it easier for Codeship to reach US-based developer companies and ‘superstars’ that are followed by developers around the world.

In a post on TechStars’ official blog, Katie Rae makes a point of saying that a lot of the companies in TechStars’ latest class are not only from outside Boston but also outside the US, inclduing Austria, France and the Ukraine. Other companies include CheckiO, LinkSycle and Neurala. In that sense, some of TechStars’ Boston mentors might become Codeship’s own mentors. Good luck Codeship and we can’t wait for the May 23rd demo day! 🙂
