Marston Partners with Start Co. in UPSTART MEMPHIS Launch

July 9th, 2013

The Marston Group, PLC, is proud to partner with Start Co. as they launch UPSTART MEMPHIS, a tech based accelerator for women-led startups. The kick-off event will be held Thursday, July 11th at the Crescent Club. Start Co. is a Memphis-based economic development organization that focuses on building startup companies and their founders.

According to Start Co., women-led private technology companies generate 35% higher returns on investment, and when backed by venture capital, earn 12% higher revenues than those led by men. Yet women launch only 3% of high growth tech startups. Upstart focuses on recognizing and fueling women’s innovation and entrepreneurship.

To help celebrate the launch of the UPSTART initiative this Thursday will be Susan Lattimore, Marston Senior Manager, and Jimmy Dickey, Marston COO and Senior Partner.
