Startup America Effort Returns To Eureka Park
LAS VEGAS – The Startup America Partnership, a national network of communities dedicated to advancing the success of American start-ups, has returned to Eureka Park this week at the 2013 International CES to provide specific programming for entrepreneurs.
Through a renewed partnership with the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), the independent nonprofit group and TechZone co-sponsor is presenting special sessions each day of the show.
The presentations are being made from a Startup America Stage within the Eureka Park, located on Level 3 at the Venetian.
“Innovation defines the International CES, and we are thrilled to partner with Startup America to bring programming that highlights the young startups and entrepreneurs who will shape the future of technology,” said CEA president/CEO Gary Shapiro. “We look forward to the exciting sessions on the Startup America Stage at the 2013 CES shining a light on the companies and innovations of tomorrow.”
“Eureka Park [is] home to some of the most cuttingedge start-ups from across the country this year at the 2013 CES,” said Scott Case, CEO of the Startup America Partnership. “We’re incredibly excited to bring together start-ups, investors, large companies and media to highlight the amazing innovations taking place at this world-class event.”
The Startup America Partnership, which was also on hand last year at Eureka Park, was launched at the White House in 2011 to help young companies succeed in order to accelerate job growth in America. CEA said it collaborated with the group by giving Startup America entrepreneurs the opportunity to benefit from the activities of the nation’s largest technology trade association.
