The White House introduced the "Startup America Partnership" to bring people across public and private industries together to foster entrepreneurship. "As a company with strong entrepreneurial roots, we're pleased to be involved with this project to provide the resources and technologies needed for entrepreneurs to create the next great companies," announced Facebook.
"As part of our commitment, we plan to host 12 Startup Days in 2011 to provide early-stage companies with engineering and design support on the Facebook Platform. Startup Days are monthly events for entrepreneurs to work and hack with us to build new apps and websites that incorporate the latest social technologies.
In addition, we plan to stay active within open source communities and are proud of what we've contributed in the past. Open source technologies continue to be important to startups that're scaling and growing quickly. They allow entrepreneurs to spend more time working on their products.
We've bet big on startups, especially those who build social into their products from the ground up. We look forward to seeing many of you join us and the other companies working with the Startup America Partnership. Stay tuned for details on the next Startup Day," added Facebook
