Starting Something Special


Do you want to get in on the ground floor of a movement that is going to change the face of a city?

Innovation and technology are reinvigorating cities all across the world, and they are a key element in rebuilding economically stagnate cities here in the U.S. Peoria, Illinois is no different. In fact, there is a huge gap of new ideas and how to get them started that has been missing in this area for several years.

Enter Startup Peoria.  The mission of this movement is laid out clearly:

Startup Peoria exists to develop, encourage and promote the tech startup community in the Central Illinois region. Our vision is to provide entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs with the tools and resources to ideate, collaborate and launch successful businesses that contribute to the long-term growth and prosperity of the local economy.

I’m proud to have Startup Peoria as one of the supporters of my project GO URBAN. I know I am just one of many people in this area that have an idea and a passion to make Peoria a better place in the future.

Whether or not you have an idea that you are ready to get started on, or if you are just in the infancy stage of gathering research – going to a Startup Peoria meeting and exploring your options is a start.
