While I was talking to Estes Gould, the program manager for Birmingham’s Velocity startup accelerator, I was introduced to Jack West. Jack is intense, he’s a people person, and he’s got a positively sunny outlook. Maybe it’s the excitement of his company being on the end stretch of a fast-track program, having the potential to make it big in something nobody had thought of before. Maybe it was the impending “graduation,” the big public reveal on the 18th, that he and his team were preparing for.
In the world of startups, one of the many aspirations these talented entrepreneurs have is expansion into nearby markets. It’s one thing to stay close to home, but expansion into a neighboring market is a whole new ball game.
Birmingham based tech startup, Planet Fundraiser, has conquered the first step of that feat, by expanding into Atlanta!
