Governor Jack Markell, state officials and business leaders, revved the engine of a new economic driver Jan. 18 at the kick-off for Start It Up Delaware.
Start It Up Delaware is a public-private partnership that will serve as a hub for entrepreneurship and create new jobs. Markell states, "With the backing and guidance of the Delaware Economic Development office, ventures like Start It Up Delaware will bring together the people, ideas, and capital necessary to help entrepreneurs thrive."
Through the Delaware Strategic Fund, the Delaware Economic Development office awarded Start It Up Delaware with a $250,000 grant that will served as seed funding for the partnership's three-tiered plan for producing entrepreneurial activity. For more information, visit dedo.delaware.gov.
