Today we are proud to announce that Dun & Bradstreet has joined the Startup America Partnership to accelerate the growth of entrepreneurship, and ultimately, help grow new jobs. Startup America Partnership is an independent alliance of entrepreneurs, corporations, universities, and foundations, and a partner of the Startup America Initiative under the auspices of The White House.

By providing young companies in The Startup America program with expertise, advice and services to help them manage and build their business, the corporate and foundation partners in the program are giving back to the community and providing the next wave of great companies with the means to successfully grow their business. In support of this effort on behalf of new and growing businesses, Dun & Bradstreet is committing up to $2 million annually by providing all eligible Startup America firms a 10% discount off all new annual purchases of our business credit and credibility solutions that provides them with the opportunity to establish, build and manage their D&B business credit profile.

Regardless of where the business is in its lifecycle, Dun & Bradstreet has a service that fits their needs ranging from a Small Business Starter package for new companies to credit building and monitoring services for companies further along their growth cycle. To take advantage of the discount, Startup America firms can simply call 800-437-0567. As an added bonus, through our alliance with American Express OPEN, also a sponsor of the Startup America Partnership, Startup America Firms who uses their American Express OPEN card will automatically receive an additional 5% off by calling 800-437-0567.

Dun & Bradstreet roots are deeply grounded in the strong belief that entrepreneurs are an important and driving force in the economy providing innovation, thought leadership and new growth opportunities. Our management team, along with many of our employees, are entrepreneurs themselves having founded companies in the Internet, technology and consumer industries.
