I have news!
It was bound to happen. The daily inspiration that I have received during the past 4 years as the chief community officer of StartupNation is now being put to use in a brand new startup company called Showcase U.
I have been working behind the scenes the past 2 years with the co-founders Chad Durbin & Jake Chapman, and have joined Showcase U as the CEO, and we just launched www.showcaseu.com
this past weekend.
Showcase U gives high school student athletes a way to showcase themselves so that they can increase their opportunity to be recruited by college coaches and pro scouts.
Chad and Jake read the book "StartupNation: Open For Business" and contacted us at StartupNation over 2 years ago. It`s been a while in the making, and the site will improve with each passing day from here forward, but I would LOVE to hear your feedback right away.
BE BOLD - we can take it, and we crave it. The StartupNation community is the smartest, most creative, and in-your-face-tell-it-like-it-is group of entrepreneurs on the planet. We NEED that kind of input.
Check it out, and give us the great, the awful, the spectacular & the "oh my, what were you thinking?!" reactions.
Oh, and watch out for a new series of blogs that I`ll be writing here at StartupNation sharing the behind the scenes scoop on the "birthing of a startup"
I`m still the StartupNation chief community officer as well as the CEO of Showcase U. Yes, life is wonderfully full!!
