We’ve been building tech communities for quite a few years now and 4 years ago Cox Business stepped up and asked how they could help. At first, like you, I wondered how a cable company could help.
And then I dove into their company and realized that for 122 years, they’ve been most interested in investing in their communities, from their first newspaper to help connect a city like Dayton, Ohio, to their Techstars and other community sponsorships.
But I wanted to take it one step further and so we brought their investment and technology leads to SoCal to meet our companies and see where else a big enterprise company could utilize its assets to enable tech companies to scale at the speeds they need to.
This is where Cox Edge came from. In the summer of 2019, Ron Levvisited SoCal for the first time and asked the question to local CTOs “what could you do with our existing infrastructure?” and boom ‘regional cloud computing’ became a sandbox environment and today is a full blown product suite.
Since we helped shape this, we’ve got a startup package that your company can access at a discount, so check out Cox Edge and then reply to this email to get a partner code from us.
