What we're about

We organize community events focused around educating, inspiring, and fostering authentic relationships.

Our mission is to establish and grow sustainable economic ecosystems that include every stakeholder in the community from every industry: for profits and non profits, students and educators, founders and employees, investors, government, etc.

Almost all of our events are designed to be accessible to everyone in order to support our mission. Everyone matters and has a role in the success of the community we share.

We offer Paid Memberships and Sponsorship Packages if you would like to gain extra benefits through our relationships, expertise, and events.

If you would like to simply support our mission, we have Supporter Subscriptions (like a Patreon) available.

Pitch to Your Peers - A Pitch Deck and Presentation Workshop

Our Pitch to Your Peers workshop is focused on teaching you how to put together an effective pitch deck and how to present it. YOU MUST REGISTER AT EVENTBRITE--LINK AT THE BOTTOM! ----- This event will take place over a Zoom meeting as we do our part in supporting the community while practicing COVID-19 safety protocols. Presenters practice running through their pitch deck in front of a live audience. Audience members are asked to practice empathy as they imagine themselves in the shoes of the intended audience of a presenter's pitch and provide constructive feedback. ----- We run this workshop in a fairly academic manner that provides a safe place to make mistakes and learn from them. We have helped founders practice their elevator pitch for a fresh idea, helped seasoned CEOs prepare for a huge fundraising round, and even helped career professionals practice pitching their boss for a raise. If you need practice, this workshop is for you. ----- We are partnered with Draper Goren Holm Ventures and we use this event to help scout for founders that we can introduce to them and our ever-growing Venture Network. No finder's fee. No pay to play for founders. We merely take note of founders with merit that we believe the network would want to hear about and we recommend they reach out to get to know the founder(s). Be sure to join our free Founder's Network for more support: https://www.805startups.com/foundersnetwork/ ----- YOU MUST REGISTER AT EVENTBRITE: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pitch-to-your-peers-pitch-deck-presentation-workshop-tickets-126326103777 Our Supporters and Premium Members get special discounts on this event: Supporters = 25% off Premium Members = FREE!
