The Startup Port Process
Startup Port offers a sought after and competitive program with a track record for business success. We work with a select handful of quarterly applicants through the launch process.

What is GDPR anyway?
Here is a nice guide about GDPR from Recode. A practical guide to the European Union’s GDPR for American businesses.
Are you an American business owner with operations or customers in Europe? On May 25, 2018, the European Union’s (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect, bringing about a number of significant changes in how organizations collect, process, manage and store personal data.
What is the GDPR?
The GDPR is a major update to the EU’s existing data protection rules, designed to reflect some of the defining trends of recent years such as globalization and accelerating growth in digital technology. Its intention is to strengthen and unify data protection for individuals within the EU.
In addition to EU-based companies, it will apply to any U.S. company collecting, processing, managing or storing the personal data of those in EU member states in relation to the delivery of goods or services or behavior monitoring.
