Startup Florida, a statewide effort to support entrepreneurs and help startups drive job creation, will officially launch during Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) with five kickoff events taking place throughout the week. Startup Florida is the fifth regional affiliate collaborating with the Startup America Partnership, the national organization dedicated to helping startups grow in order to jumpstart job creation in the country.
“Florida is a hot bed of startup activity and our entrepreneurs are launching promising high-growth companies all over the state,” said Kirstie Chadwick, head of Startup Florida. “Startup Florida provides a collaborative forum for Florida’s entrepreneurs to tap into a statewide network of experienced mentors, capital, talent, corporate partners and resources. Startup Florida will be ‘led by entrepreneurs, for entrepreneurs,’ so it will also provide a consortium to collectively voice our needs and barriers for growth to regional, state and national policymakers.” Read more here.
