Startup America Rocks….Our Bus @ The Kentucky Derby

1 min read
On the Tuesday before the Derby, Startup America picked the winners: Ralph Acosta, CEO ofSkuRun, a Los Angeles company that mobilizes sales and marketing content, and Andrew Sell, founder of HipCycle, an online marketplace for upcycled products from Ocean, New Jersey. The winners got to walk the red carpet with Mr. Case and hob nob with politicians and potential investors.

Startup America headed by Priceline.com CTO and co-founder Scott Case, had an idea on Monday morning the week of Derby: “Let’s take some start-ups to the Kentucky Derby.”
( Hey!  Kinda sounds like our U.S. Jobs Project – American Made Chic Summer Tour kick off idea.)
Inc. Magazine reported on it and no- “it wasn’t completely random”.  In fact we at the U.S. Jobs Project like to think of it as grassroots – Guerrilla Marketing!  Nobody gets anyones attention by staying at home, marketing is an active, energetic process. Obviously, Mr. Case gets that and then some.
A little background on Scott Case:  Timothy “Scott” Case (not related to Steve Case) is a technologist, entrepreneur and inventor and was founding CTO of Priceline, the “Name Your Own Price” company that was one of only a handful of startups in U.S. history to reach a billion dollars in annual sales in less than 24 months. As Chief Technology Officer, he was responsible for building the technology that enabled Priceline’s hyper-growth. Most recently, Scott was named CEO and board member of the Startup America Partnership, where he’ll invest his energy to drive American entrepreneurship to create jobs and sustain our nation’s global leadership.
So, as you can see Mr. Case knows a little about hyper-growth, Startup’s and great ideas.
