About Brandon Clarke
Brandon’s message is simple, find your tribe! He knows that this one thing can have a HUGE impact on how successful you can be in business. He is so dedicated to helping early stage businesses succeed while also building a thriving ecosystem that he, along with his co-founder, started a non-profit called StartupAZ. Their mission is to inspire connectivity and generosity among the most innovative young companies, helping them grow and give back.
They started back in 2014 with a “big tent” idea of what entrepreneurship could mean for a community and how they could help accelerate the growth of ventures in Phoenix through something called the Collective, their signature initiative designed to increase the success rate and growth of the region’s highest potential startup companies.
