We at Go for Vertical have been busy! And a lot of it centers on what we have been doing here in Phoenix, the capital of Arizona, and the 6th largest city in the U.S., where we expanded earlier this year.
Case in point: our CLIMB Accelerator Program for Startups, which we are producing here in partnership with The CO+HOOTS Foundation, a non-profit that works to provide equity through entrepreneurship, ensuring that by 2030 the face of Arizona entrepreneurship will mirror the face of Arizona itself. Five new Phoenix-based startup teams have started their CLIMB training, which includes learning about the lean startup, understanding tech product development, and working with some of Phoenix's best mentors and advisors.
The CLIMB Accelerator Program is the latest iteration of the successful model we first built in Tucson, where in our most recent cohort we had twelve teams participate, seven graduate, and now have three new startups that are moving forward to develop their technology and go to market. We even have a funding pipeline for these teams! Catalyzing this type of startup activity is exactly what CLIMB and Go For Vertical is all about.
And of course, we are continuing our fundraising here on Wefunder to help drive even more tech startup activity and economic development in Arizona and beyond. Thank you to all of our new investors! We appreciate you, and look forward to expanding and growing our business with your support.

Curious how well the companies have done? Or how many raised follow-on financing?
Some fine print: 1) These numbers include startups currently live on Wefunder if they pass their minimum target. 2) Some startups use two different laws at the same time (i.e., Regulation D and Regulation Crowdfunding).
