News Release: Verge Pipe Media is Proud to Join Startup America

Posted by admin on Jan 31, 2012 4:18:16 PM

Verge Pipe Media is proud to announce their partnership with Startup America. Startup America is a partnership forged between the White House, the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation and the Case Foundation. Startup America is celebrating one year in business and, to date, the alliance has acquired $1.2 billion dollars worth of support for startups scattered across 17 states (540% growth). The organization has the goal of unlocking access to capital, connecting mentors, reducing barriers, accelerating innovation and unleashing market opportunities for new business.

Verge Pipe Media is currently the only company in Startup America’s Alabama technology sector. New jobs follow new companies and Verge Pipe Media’s founder is adamant that a high-tech startup can work and will flourish within the Valley region. CEO and Chief Imagineer Don Crow: “for too long, Alabama as a State and Auburn University have let their greatest natural resource - bright, resourceful and talented students - leave after graduation to go elsewhere. I'd like to see that change. We want to grow a relationship with student led organizations, fellow entrepreneurs and anyone interested in seeing Auburn, Alabama become a high-tech hub for innovation and great services.“

Verge Pipe Media (VPM) is a mobile app developer and full-service digital marketing agency that specializes in social media marketing and word-of-mouth campaign development and ongoing management. Clients range from non-profits and independent business owners to large corporations across the country.

In addition to work within the B2B sector, Verge Pipe Media is on the cusp of releasing Golf Joust, an original application for iPhone and Android smart phone users. Beta-testing on the golf app and social network is expected to start in East Alabama and West Georgia within a matter of days.

“It’s just incredibly exciting to be a part of Startup America,” says Meredith Singer, Verge Pipe Media’s COO and Creative Director, “—momentum is building. We’re an agile and spirited team, with big dreams for our business and the future of this community.”
