About Us

The Startup America Partnership is a private, nonprofit entity co-funded by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation and the Case Foundation. Its core goals are to (1) increase the number of new, high-growth firms that are creating economic growth, innovation, and quality jobs; (2) celebrate and honor entrepreneurship as a core American value and source of competitive advantage; and (3) inspire and empower a an ever-greater diversity of communities and individuals to build great American companies.

While not a grant-making entity, the Startup America Partnership will identify and encourage private-sector partners (such as corporations, foundations, startup funders, CEOs, and others) to commit resources that will help entrepreneurial companies start or grow—either by contributing funds to existing proven models or by developing new programs and efforts to help entrepreneurs.
