President Obama Wants to Help You Pitch Your Startup Clients


Well, not really. No need to break out those 1984 ”Big Brother” references today.

The most important takeaway from the president’s video address to the  4th Annual Global Entrepreneurship Summit in Malaysia last week is that nonprofit Up Global will partner with the State Department to ”establish entrepreneurship programs in 1,000 cities around the world by 2016″ with the goal of helping the most innovative startups succeed via tutorials, “corporate connections” and exposure in Startup Digest.

What does that mean for startup PR? Well, the fact that your client’s founders participated in one of these programs will certainly make for a stronger pitch, won’t it?
