Wiki

The Startup America Partnership is based on a simple premise: young companies that grow create jobs. As a core American value, entrepreneurship is critical to the country’s long term success and it’s time to step up our game.

GOALS

We have three main goals:
1. Provide valuable resources and connections to help young companies grow
2. Support regional startup ecosystems throughout the country
3. Recognize startups as the drivers of our economy and their founders as American heroes

PARTNER RESOURCES

So far, we’ve assembled more than $1 Billion worth of commitments from dozens of partners to support the growth of startups in five key areas:

Expertise: Connect startups with training, mentors, advisors and accelerators
Services: Provide startups with access to critical services at reduced costs
Talent: Assist startups in recruiting, training and retaining the people that can help them grow
Customers: Help startups through acquisition of new customers and expansion into new markets
Capital: Highlight sources of capital available to startups in various regions and sectors

Once startups apply and become a Startup America Firm, they can access and manage these resources through a personalized dashboard

In addition to the product and service focused offerings, Startup America Firms gain access to Connection Programs which provide unique opportunities to connect with thought leaders, major corporations (as partners or customers), customers, and more.

STARTUP REGIONS

We are working on a regional basis with local serial entrepreneurs to support and grow startup ecosystems across the country. Leaders in cities from Des Moines and New Orleans to Nashville and Burlington are strengthening their local startup networks and engaging young companies to help them grow organically in their hometown. All of the Startup America Regions are grassroots, entrepreneur-led initiatives and serve as a rallying point to bring all the elements together – entrepreneurs and startups, local talent and universities, activities and mentorship, large companies and local government – all to help startups grow.

RECOGNITION & CELEBRATION

We continually highlight the importance of startups and the teams that drive them as innovators and job creators, while celebrating entrepreneurship as a core American value. We aspire to make creating or joining an American startup the most desirable job in the world. We’re working at events across the country capturing and sharing startup stories, celebrating newly-minted and seasoned entrepreneurs, and promoting startups as the nation’s core economic engine.

Startups are at the heart of the Startup America Partnership. Our “customers” are the founders and their teams who strive to establish and grow their companies – creating amazing jobs along the way. Join us as a startupregional leader or simply cheer startups on by tracking our progress.

Together we’ll Startup America!
