Be Heard: Startup Day Across America

The Global Accelerator Network is proud to be supporting tomorrow’s Startup Day Across America.

Startup Day Across America is an opportunity to build relationships and understanding between startups/startup ecosystems and their representatives in local, state and federal government. As numerous points of legislation (immigration, patent reform, crowd funding and more) that directly affect startups will be considered in the coming months, now is the time to make connections to ensure the interests and needs of startups like you are heard.

44 representatives have agreed to participate in Startup Day Across America, alongside numerous members of state and local government, as well as innumerous startups, accelerators, coworking spaces and capital firms who have offered to host events.

We strongly encourage you to take part:
