We're getting to the point where events are starting to be announced for the conventions. In 2008 I saw Tom Brokaw, Death Cab For Cutie, and Dave Matthews Band to name a few. I tried to get to Rage Against the Machine, The Daily Show, and James Taylor but couldn't make it (I attended every minute of the convention from gavel to gavel).
Today, the fast-growing startups of EventFarm, HyperVocal, and FIGHTER Interactive, who have joined forces to launch "StartUp RockOn," are proud to announce a partnership with Startup America on their events at the Republican and Democratic National Conventions. StartUp RockOn is a series of events highlighting the importance of America's start-up community to the future of the nation. The Grammy-winning band, The Roots, have signed on as the headliner for StartUp RockOn at the DNC in Charlotte.
As a growing movement focused on providing startups with access to the resources and networks they need to succeed, Startup America will be focused on bringing in startups, partners and experts to the events at the conventions to highlight the vitality of America's startup economy.
Startup America CEO, Scott Case, stated, "As the RNC and DNC capture the attention of the country, it's imperative to highlight the importance of startups to our national economy, and we're incredibly excited to partner with EventFarm, HyperVocal and FIGHTER Interactive -- three hard-working startups themselves -- to do just that."
