Happy Monday! The Startup America Partnership Summit kicks off today here in Boulder, CO and I’m ready to meetup with some rock star entrepreneurs.
Over a hundred or so entrepreneurial leaders from 27 regions (I represent the CA region as one of the leaders) in the US will gather for two days to talk startups and startup communities.
How awesome is that, right? Two days filled with startup talk and what we can do to build and support more high growth startups/communities. Where do I sign?
If you’re wondering what Startup America is, Startup America is a growing national movement of entrepreneurs and resources providing startups access to the things they need to grow and produce jobs.
The movement launched at the White House in early 2011. The AOL co-founder Steve Case chairs the Partnership and the kauffman and Case Foundations are its founding partners. American Airlines, American Express OPEN, Dell Inc., Intuit Inc., Microsoft and NYSE Euronext are just some of the corporate sponsors that have already jumped on board as well.
Yeah, it’s pretty awesome! And, you should for sure sign up. Does it cost money? Nope. It’s free. It’s a no cost program with a ton of benefits. And, if anything, being a part of this organization will help you connect with some pretty cool people who can help you grow your company.
I will share my thoughts and what I learned later in the week.
Have a great week!
