Recently, 1871 has stepped it up even further. They have been helping connect startups with relevant established corporations to foster collaboration and partnerships. Also, they have been providing startups with exposure to top executives nationwide. A recent example of this was last week, when Chris Kelly, former Chief Privacy Officer of Facebook (who was also a Democratic Candidate for California Attorney General) visited 1871. Apart from giving Chris a tour of the space, J.B. Pritzker invited a few startups to spend some time with Chris and his colleagues. Georama was fortunate enough to be one of these startups, along with WeDeliver and SocialCrunch. We had a really engaging conversation about all 3 businesses and there were even some interesting parallels that emerged. We came out of the meeting feeling great having received validation, feedback, and ideas from such a distinguished group.
1871 continues to increase its investment in helping startups like Georama be successful. To the startups that are already here – let’s make the most of it; and to the new startups out there – I highly recommend considering 1871.
