SW Sponsor .CO Announces Exclusive Membership Program + Resources for Startups!

Startup Weekend sponsor and startup advocate .CO has just announced the launch of an exclusive membership program to provide .CO users with tools, resources and benefits to help them to build and grow successful businesses.  The new beta program will be made available to the first 1,000 .CO users who sign up. 

“We’re not here to build ‘just another domain extension,’” said Juan Diego Calle, founder and CEO of .CO. “We’re here to support the thriving community of innovators, entrepreneurs, startups, developers, investors, marketers and big dreamers who are building the world’s next great businesses and brands on .CO with the fuel they need to take action on their plans – and to succeed.”

Anyone with a .CO domain name is eligible to become a member at i.go.co. Upon joining, members will gain immediate access to exclusive benefits in key areas that startups want and need most – including coveted tickets to premium educational programs, exclusive invitations to networking events, and a variety of promotional opportunities.

Some of the benefits that are currently available include:

  1. Free passes to Startup Weekend events worldwide;
  2. Free tickets to elite educational events like Eric Ries’ Lean Startup Conference and 500 Startups’ Warm Gun Conference;
  3. Free access to co-working spaces in key cities;
  4. Free SEO consultations; and
  5. Discounts on General Assembly courses, live and online.

“We recognize that .CO is a platform for people to create and bring their ideas to life,” said Lori Anne Wardi, Vice President of .CO. “What makes us different from other domains out there is that our greatest focus is not on getting people to buy .CO web addresses, but rather, helping them to succeed once they do.”
