Our Partners


"Community colleges play a critical role in preparing students for entrepreneurship.  Bakersfield College’s partnership with StarItUp is an innovative way for us to help students build the skills and experience they need to be competitive in an evolving industry landscape.”

Sonya Christian, President of Bakersfield College
“StartItUp is a cutting-edge thing that the city is doing for entrepreneurs that actually has never been done. As you start answering questions about yourself and your business idea, the algorithms in the chatbot [an artificial conversational entity] connect you with a mentor who is similar to you or has the skill set that can address your needs.”

John Keisler, Director of Economic Development
We partnered with StartItUp to fulfill our commitment to small and mid-sized businesses, who are the backbone of the Bakersfield economy. StartItUp will help SMBs vet their business idea, receive advising at the right time and better understand their entrepreneurial strengths and weaknesses.”

Nick Ortiz, Bakersfield Chamber of Commerce
"We partnered with StartItUp to identify those entrepreneurs ready for advising, get a clear picture of their strengths/weaknesses and scale the number of businesses we could serve.

With consistent feature additions, improved tools and scalable communications methods for our advisors, StartItUp is aligned with our mission of helping entrepreneurs access capital, develop business and financial models, connect to global markets, and grow their business”
