$400 Million Donated to Startup America

According to TechCrunch, Google, Microsoft, LinkedIn, AmEx And others offer over $400M in value to Startup America. From the article:

Unveiled at the end of January, the Startup America Partnership has just announced a slew of new company commitments, in conjunction with President Obama’s Town Hall meeting at Facebook today.

For those uninitiated, Startup America is a White House partnership with AOL co-founder Steve Case and the Kauffman and the Case Foundations, with the aim to increase “the number of new, high-growth firms that are creating economic growth, innovation, and quality jobs; celebrate and honor entrepreneurship as a core American value and source of competitive advantage; and inspire and empower an ever-greater diversity of communities and individuals to build great American companies.”

15 companies are upping the ante on their Startup America commitments today, delivering over $400 million in value over the original Startup America commitment, derived from partnerships with companies like IBM and Intel. Startup America is also rolling a membership program in which companies in various stages (like “Startup,””Rampup” and “Speedup”) can apply for these resources.
