Two nonprofit groups -- Startup America Partnership and Startup Weekend -- that are focused on promoting entrepreneurial activity are joining forces to form a new entity known as Up Global. "Our communities have had a huge overlap over the years, and ultimately were all driving towards the same goal," explained Startup Weekend CEO Marc Nager, who will lead the new organization. Startup Weekend has held thousands of networking events since its inception; Startup America, meanwhile, has focused on asking aspiring entrepreneurs what types of support they need to get going.
