Startup Scaleup To Bring Together Entrepreneurs, Mentors At Gordon Square

Amplify your ambition, say the organizers of this year’s Startup Scaleup.

The event will be June 26 in Gordon Square Arts District and is designed to help entrepreneurs find the right connections and resources to reach the next level, said Nick Worner, content manager for JumpStart, which organizes Startup Scaleup.

Startup Scaleup will present nearly 40 workshops, panels and networking events spread out over several venues. Admission is $20, which includes a $10 lunch voucher and two $5 snack vouchers redeemable at various Gordon Square eateries.

Startup Scaleup starts with registration at 8 a.m., and concludes with happy hour from 5 to 7 p.m. sponsored by TechPint, organizers of popup tech conferences in Northeast Ohio, and Crypto Cleveland, a meetup group for people interested in blockchain and cryptocurrency.

The StartUp Scaleup App Extravaganza will feature a place where app fans can try out new technology developed in Northeast Ohio while networking with the app teams that built them.

Monique Woodard, former venture partner at 500 Startups in San Francisco, is a featured guest speaker. Woodard has advised and invested in major startup companies with minority founders, including Blavity, Mented Cosmetics, and Silvernest. She will speak during a panel titled, “How Diverse Founders and Investors are Changing Startup Culture.”
