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|
