Tiffanie Stanard wants to talk.
The founder of Stimulus, a startup aimed at making it easier for small-to medium-sized organizations to find sponsorships and funding, plans to spark a six-city virtual conversation on May 15th as part of her efforts to spur leaders in the startup and small-business space across the U.S. to share experiences and opportunities.
The discussion, to be held at the new Microsoft Reactor where Stimulus is the startup in residence, will connect entrepreneur community organizers based in Chicago, Boston, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. during simultaneous events that focus on how tech can be used to link cities together.
Stanard said she wants to facilitate a cross-country discussion about how organizations and businesses – especially minority- or women-owned ones – can access resources; expand to other cities that may have far different rules and regulations from their own; and learn from each others’ successes and failures.
At least two of the organizations participating in the upcoming #Connect2Resources event are planning their own expansion into Philadelphia, including Boston’s Venture Cafe Global Institute in Boston and Her Corner, a D.C.-based accelerator for women-owned small businesses.
