Startup San Diego is the latest chapter of Startup California, a statewide effort to support the growth of startups in California in collaboration with The Startup America Partnership. The Startup America Partnership was launched at the White House in response to President Obama’s call to celebrate, inspire, and accelerate high-growth entrepreneurship throughout the nation. The Partnership is bringing together an alliance of major corporations, funders, service providers, mentors and advisors working to dramatically increase the prevalence and success of high-growth enterprises in the U.S.  AOL co-founder Steve Case chairs the partnership and the Kauffman and Case Foundations are founding partners, providing initial funding and strategic guidance. For more information on the Partnership, visitwww.startupamericapartnership.org and follow at www.twitter.com/startupamerica  and www.facebook.com/startupamerica.

StartUp San Diego

Startup California and Startup San Diego are regions of The Startup America Partnership a public private initiative founded by former AOL Chairman Steve Case and endorsed by the White House.
See www.startupcalifornia.org for more information.
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.
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
