Verge Message Board › How you can drastically fuel your business by 2:30 PM today
More than a half dozen companies applied for the Startup Indiana golden ticket in the past 12 hours. Which leads me to believe that some of you procrastinated (and that I did a terrible job yesterday of getting the word out about this opportunity).
Startup America has been known to leverage their partnerships with companies like American Airlines, Intuit, Microsoft, and the New York Stock Exchange to pull in massive favors for growing companies. Just take a glance at their board, which includes a LinkedIn co-founder, Netflix CEO, the CEO at FedEx, and Magic Johnson (as in the former-NBA-superstar Magic Johnson).
These “Wonkas” of the business world are connected and have offered to plug up to 10 fast-growing Indiana companies into their network and resources to ramp up that business in 2013.
This is for "ramp-up" companies with more than 5 employees that are doing more than $100k/month in revenue.
The published deadline just came and went. But we know we sprung it on you last minute so we've bought you a couple more hours, extending the deadline to 2:30 PM today, for you to apply to have your company ramped up by the Startup America network.
Even if you don't qualify as a ramp-up company, this is a great opportunity to refer your fellow founders to make 2013 a game-changing year. So, please check out the golden ticket opportunity, apply, and share it.
Here's to getting more shit done in 2013.
