2018 Startup Evangelist of the Year : VOTING
presented by The DEC
What is a Startup Evangelist? A Startup Evangelist is a person who supports local startups and establishes it as a standard in the community. They help set the community ideology, mindset, and help facilitate communication between all of the major stakeholders. They engage the community regularly and share their ideas to push differing groups of opinion to discover common ground. It’s not about shouting with a megaphone when news breaks. It’s about having your ear to the ground to enforce transparency in messaging to retain the authenticity of our community and most importantly our entrepreneurs. The Startup Evangelist protects and preserves the spirit of the community by being the voice of reason with a “give first” mentality and by championing community. Check out the finalist here.
