Ever wonder what it would be like to be an entrepreneur?   Got an idea for a new business?

At Techstars Startup Weekend, you’ll be immersed in the ideal environment for startup magic to happen. Surrounded by smart, passionate people and with the best tools and approaches at your disposal, you’ll take giant leaps toward creating a business, becoming a founder, and connecting with the right people and resources.   Whether or not you have a business idea or want to learn what it takes to be an entrepreneur, Techstars Startup Weekend is for you.   

Techstars Startup Weekend is a 54-hour event, where attendees pitch ideas, form teams and start companies. These events are very community-focused and provide a place for budding entrepreneurs to find co-founders, mentors, and momentum for their ideas.

The participants that attend have 60 seconds to make a pitch (optional), the pitches are whittled down to the top ideas, and then teams form around the ideas to come out with several developed companies or projects. Finally, the weekend culminates with demonstrations in front of an audience of judges and potential investors.  For more information and to register, go to

The Cal Coastal Small Business Development Center will have a table at this event to share available resources and help you sign up for no-fee one-on-one consulting assistance to launch your startup!
