There’s nothing we love more than to see one of our .CO-ers succeed in a massive way. Well, except for one thing. It’s even more exciting when their massive success will help hundreds of thousands of people around the world to succeed in a massive way too!
Today we are so proud to see that our good friends at UP Global (UP.CO) will be given the honor of ringing the closing bell for NASDAQ. And that between 3-4 pm today, Eastern time, UP Global will light up the streets of Times Square with this awesome billboard.
UP.CO is being show-cased smack dab in the middle of the world’s stage — the Big Apple — and the message is hard to miss: it’s all about startups!
This is all part of a bigger story UP Global is taking part in. Their appearance at NASDAQ comes on the heels of the President of the United States announcing the State Department’s groundbreaking partnership with UP Global to bring UP Global entrepreneurship programs to 1000 cities by 2016, and to support 500,000 entrepreneurs and their startups around the world.
Congratulations to our friends at UP Global! Today you are lighting up Times Square. Tomorrow, with all your passion, energy and commitment — we have no doubt you will light up the world!
