Heath Cowart, founder of Real Digital Productions, has announced their sponsorship of the Asheville chapter of Google’s Startup Grind. RDP supports monthly chapter meet-ups featuring local business leaders and the hard lessons they learned on the road to success.
The Startup Grind is a global initiative with over 400,000 members in over 85 countries. Local entrepreneurs Mike McKearin and Elijah Elkins are the Asheville city directors.
“Asheville was recently named one of the best cities to launch a startup, next to Austin, New York City and Boulder,” said Elkins. “Mike and I felt that connecting our local community to such a powerful world-wide resource was necessary to continue this trend as a hotspot for entrepreneurs. We were thrilled that Heath, Melinda and the RDP team wanted to join us in our efforts.”
“The underlying mission of Real Digital Productions parallels that of the Startup Grind,” said Cowart. “We are trying to support entrepreneurs and startups on their road to greatness and success so the partnership made complete sense. It’s been an incredibly enjoyable experience working with Mike and Elijah and we’re looking forward to the future of this local chapter of the Startup Grind.”
