Let me put you back in the loop with another #StartupScoop! This week we have two sweet topics to serve, so get your spoons ready to eat this all up!
The Digital Resource Guide
As part of our role as the “hub” of the ecosystem, Startup Tucson works to connect entrepreneurs with the resources they need to build their companies. One way we do this is through our one-to-one Connections Services. We are excited to announce another project we are working on to make these resources free and available to the whole community. With the support of the Southern Arizona Leadership Council, Startup Tucson has started work on developing a Digital Resource Guide for the innovation community in collaboration with community partners. Through this online resource guide you will be able to search a comprehensive d local resources such as Incubators and Accelerators, Wet and Dry Labs, Investors, and Co-Working spaces. Phases 2 and 3 will have lists of local vendors offering services for startups like Legal, HR, Marketing, and more that will be vetted by our team to make sure we’re connecting you with the best possible support in Tucson. While this project is still in the early phases, SALC has put together a committee that is focusing on the creation of the Resource Guide alongside the Startup Tucson team! We are so excited to be behind a much needed resource to ensure that our startups have access to everything they need on their journey!
