Startup Commons is an organization that helps others facilitate a efficient enviroment for their startup. They aim to make the ecosystem of the startup organized and focused on "innovation, entrepreneruship, talen, finance, policy, and international connections". They have alot of experience assisting different government systems in diffrent parts of the world as well as 6 years of startup ecosystem research and develeopment. They have a good foundation to help others build their startups domestically and internationally. 


Entreprenuership is a large of any economy and helps increase the amount of technological innovation that is happening - which they claim pushes societies forward. By allowing people a space in which to organize their ideas they help drive that desire to find solutions to today's problems for a better tomorrow. 

Distinct Differences From Other Offerings

This company has a wide range of skills and experience among the team. Many of them are entreprenerus themselves and have worked in government or economic development. Having this kind of foundation and network can be important when looking into a startup because sometimes it is about the people that you now. Also having an organized platform among the team that is attempting to do a startup will help them efficiently and effectively move forward.
