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.
