Black Dog Promotions Bets on the “Next Silicon Valley”

Black Dog Promotions, a Tempe based firm that specializes in the merging of viral marketing, public relations and social media has acquired GrowAZ.org

Phoenix/Tempe, AZ, October 29, 2012 - Black Dog Promotions, a Tempe based firm that specializes in the merging of viral marketing, public relations and social media has acquired GrowAZ.org, a popular online platform that creates synergistic relationships among Arizona’s entrepreneurs.

The firm will shift GrowAZ.org’s focus toward tech start-ups, offering entrepreneurs and investors a platform through which to connect, explore hot products and services, and pursue opportunities to grow.

According to Black Dog Promotions CEO Scott Kelly, “Arizona launched more start-ups last year than anywhere else in the nation according to a CNN Money report that cites the Kauffman Index of Entrepreneurial Activity. We’re fertile breeding ground because of our close proximity to a skilled labor force, combined with our state’s business-friendly labor and tax policies. Some say Arizona is the next Silicon Valley – and we’re betting on it.”

According to Kelly, who describes himself as a “serial entrepreneur,” Black Dog Promotions offers the expertise and experience to leverage the site, which is free to members to encourage robust participation. According to Executive Director, Jill Howard Allen, the site draws revenue via ad sponsorships.

“What we’re doing is inspiring an incubator for both innovation and enterprise to merge. Our members list their products and/or services, and also collaborate and share information, tips, and advice with other entrepreneurs,” said Allen.
