When & Where
Driven from within the community, led by entrepreneurs themselves, the Startup America Regions are meant to be locally-owned and inclusive initiatives. The Regions enable the entire community to recognize the importance of startups, rampups and speedups to their economy, rally together around the Startup America principles, identify "big ideas" that will really drive change, collectively work together to make a lasting impact, and celebrate their own entrepreneurs as American heroes.
