Entrepreneurial ecosystem alive and well with #yesphx

PHOENIX – Growing out of Phoenix Startup Week, a monthly event connects the often disparate startup community in The Valley. The group #yesphx has a Facebook group and an event page but encourages face-to-face interaction to help each other succeed.

With a belief that the two-guys-in-a-garage-story of company building is a myth, #yesphx is intended to help people make connections and collaborate. The networking events bring together various resources and talent and help fuel direction. They create an energy that can’t be as easily accessed when it is dispersed all over The Valley.

Phoenix Startup Week hosted 100 events catering to thousands, was produced with the help of Startup.co and was sponsored by Chase Bank.
