BOSTON (CBS) — Call it a microcosm of America; young entrepreneurs dip into their creative well and come up with a product or idea that just may sell.

A group called “Techstars” aims to harness that creativity through events like one held Tuesday at the House of Blues.

“We call it demo day, it’s a chance for them to explain their business in five-to-six minutes to an audience of about 800 investors, interested entrepreneurs and members of the community,” said Techstars Managing Director Reed Sturtevant.

Each of the 12 participating startups were given $100,000, legal, banking and hosting services and office space for three months.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Carl Stevens caught up with literary startup “Litographs.” The man behind the idea – Danny Fein – explained how he can fit 25,000 to 50,000 words of a literary work on a t-shirt. His line of posters fit even more – enough to fit the whole text of Moby Dick.

“I hope we can introduce the brand and our product and vision to a lot of smart and interesting people in Boston and Cambridge, which is the best place to be for a literary startup,” Fein said.
