ATLANTA – Calling all start-up companies located throughout the Southeast, Start-Up Council, a group of industry experts committed to supporting the next generation of emerging companies, is now accepting applications for its next fall Forum taking place on Wednesday, Sept. 21. Entries are being accepted until Monday, Aug. 29.
Each quarter, Start-Up Council offers free consulting, in a roundtable setting, with individual start-up companies to answer questions and discuss issues impacting the start-up’s business strategy and launch, including brand identity, market strategy, venture capital, business development and public relations. Over the past five years Start-Up Council has advised more than 40 companies.
“The southeast’s start-up community continues to gain momentum as more groups rally around early stage companies, encouraging them throughout the build, funding and launch milestones. Start-Up Council is enthusiastic about its next roundtable event to further local efforts and support for these companies,” says Genna Keller, principal at Trevelino/Keller, the founding member of the Start-Up Council.
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.
