Digital October Center Joins the Startup Federation

September 7, 2013

On September 5th, the Washington-based incubator 1776 announced the first members of its international club, called Startup Federation. This group is an informal association made up of the best centers working to support tech entrepreneurship all around the world. The organization was created to give these centers the opportunity to exchange ideas and problem-solving solutions while expanding the frontiers of international educational and accelerator cooperation.

The Startup Federation’s first members include American companies General Assembly (New York), Capital Factory (Austin), Cambridge Innovation Center (Boston), and 1871 (Chicago), as well as Warner Yard (London), Betahaus (Berlin), and the Digital October Center.

One advantage that the Federation offers its startups

is the opportunity to use the above-named locations for short-term stays, free of charge.

“We’re always happy to take in residents from other Startup Federation members for 10 days, with no advance warning or formalities,” said Maria Adamian, curator of the Digital October Center.

“The list will soon expand to include San Francisco, as well as additional infrastructure projects from London and Austin” she continued. “I think that API Moscow could become the next Russian location to join the federation.”

A discussion panel dedicated to the problems and peculiarities of developing technological hubs in various regions of the world could also become one of the Startup Federation’s collaborative projects in the near future. The panel was announced in preparation for the SXSW 2014 conference.
