Chase today announced a partnership with Seattle non-profit
UP Global to present
Startup Week powered by Chase, a community-led celebration of entrepreneurs.
The national sponsorship grew out of Chase’s title role in
Denver Startup Week, the largest free entrepreneur event in North America. Startup Week features a platform of locally-organized events, as well as Basecamp, launched by Chase and conceived by Denver organizers as the epicenter of Startup Week activities.
“Startup Week celebrates the entrepreneur and connects them to essential local support systems,” said Scott Geller, CEO of Chase Business Banking, which serves 2.3 million small businesses across the country. “We are thrilled to help expand this innovative, community-led program that informs and inspires everyone in the entrepreneurial ecosystem.”
Starting September 15 in Denver and continuing into spring 2015, the following cities will host a Startup Week, created by local community leaders with support from UP Global and Chase:
Columbus, Ohio – Spring 2015
Phoenix – Winter 2015
Dallas/Ft. Worth – Spring 2015
Seattle – Fall 2014
Denver – Fall 2014
Tampa – Winter 2015
“There are very few organizations with the footprint and forward thinking Chase has,” said Marc Nager, Chief Executive Officer of UP Global, which hosts entrepreneur events in more than 500 cities around the world. “We believe entrepreneurs and the communities they live in are going to drive the growth in this country for future generations, and UP Global is proud to be working at the grassroots level with Chase to roll up our sleeves and support the hard-working entrepreneurs across America."
