ATLANTA – The Start-Up Council, a group of industry experts committed to supporting the next generation of emerging companies, has issued a call for entries for the Q1 2011 Start-Up Council Roundtable to be held on Wednesday, March 23.
Created in 2006, the Start-Up Council is a forum providing gratis counsel to entrepreneurs launching new businesses by providing guidance on public relations, social marketing, funding, legal, business development, outsourced manufacturing, marketing and branding.
“Enthusiasm throughout the Atlanta start-up community is at a high point, being fueled by efforts such as the Southeast Venture Conference and Start Atlanta. With The Start-Up Council and our Q1 timing, we hope to continue to further momentum and move local efforts forward,” says Genna Keller, principal at Trevelino/Keller Communications Group, the founding member of the Start-Up Council.
Each quarter, the Start-Up Council offers consulting with each individual company, in a roundtable format, to discuss issues critical to a start-up’s business strategy and launch including brand identity, market strategy, venture capital, business development and public relations.
Should companies wish for in-depth counsel, each entity in the Start-Up Council can be engaged individually – each providing a well-defined offering with a set of associated fees. Over the past five years Start-Up Council has advised more than 40 local companies.
