Erich Broksas at Big Omaha 2011 – Thursday, May 12, 2011
This video features Erich Broksas of the Startup America Partnership. Broksas is a senior vice president at the Case Foundation, and is also serving as the partnership development lead for the Startup America Partnership. With a deep business background, and having worked in several entrepreneurial environments himself, Erich works with corporate partners to develop meaningful commitments that will help Startup America entrepreneurs smartly grow and scale their companies.
In his talk, Erich gave an overview of the history and objectives of the Startup America Partnership. The Partnership is looking to strengthen five main areas within the entrepreneurial ecosystem, as well as catalyze efforts and reduce barriers. These areas of focus include talent, services, expertise, customers and capital.
We’re excited to be working with Erich and the team at Startup America Partnership, and look forward to future collaborative efforts in continuing to build the ecosystem in the greater Midwest.
