Nashville, Tennesee (PRWEB) September 03, 2013
The Nashville Entrepreneur Center (EC) has formed a strategic partnership with .CO Internet, the company behind the fast-growing .CO domain, and as a result has moved its website to the coveted two-character EC.co URL.
The organizations have plans to develop a co-branded learning series for entrepreneurs to be broadcast internationally and to provide startups in the Nashville EC accelerator with additional support to help them succeed.
In the three years since its launch, the .CO domain has become one of the most successful top-level domain extensions in the world, with more than 1.5 million Web addresses registered by people and companies in more than 200 countries. Leading organizations such as Twitter, UP Global, Founder Institute and Google use a .CO domain to support their online presences.
“We are always looking for opportunities to partner with the best,” said Michael Burcham, CEO of the Nashville EC. “The .CO domain has become the emerging domain for innovative companies and startups around the globe, and our strategic partnership will allow us to connect with more startups and entrepreneurs through the growing .CO network.”
The Nashville EC and .CO partnership will continue to evolve and create resources to help Nashville startups succeed in developing investable business models.
“We select our partnerships carefully,” said Lori Anne Wardi, vice president of .CO Internet. “Our new partnership with the Nashville EC is an ideal collaboration. The organization’s mission and vision are exactly in line with our values at .CO, and we look forward to working together to support the ideas that entrepreneurs at the Nashville EC accelerator are bringing to life.”
The Nashville EC recently moved into its new location in the historic trolley barns at Rolling Mill Hill near downtown Nashville, nearly tripling its size and increasing its ability to connect entrepreneurs with the resources they need to be successful. The digital move to EC.co adds to the momentum of the physical move.
