Above The Bay was created to help everyday entrepreneurs take their ideas and turn them into a running business. Our custom step by step course provides best practices from successful entrepreneurs and business leaders so you can learn what others have gone through.
Join us for our first Meetup or jump in anytime. Each event takes on a new topic, including:
Exploring & researching your idea
Prototype & testing
Getting Due Diligence ready
Each week we will try and host a professional to speak on the weekly topic.
The courses have a strong focus on hardware products and businesses but the lessons and materials do relate to software and service models as well.
These courses are designed to be hands on to get you thinking and working with other entrepreneurs. Some courses will contain worksheets & group brainstorming.

Above The Bay was founded by Joseph Segura-Conn a native to the Silicon Valley startup lifestyle. At the age of 23 he commenced work as an independent contractor with Tesla, Mercedes, Facebook, as well as other Fortune 500 companies. Around this same time he founded his first company, Prevail Prototypes, an accelerator program in which the main focus is to help early stage entrepreneurs build out their product ideas.

The courses focused on educating the public in the necessary steps to take an idea and create a product, helping guide them to starting their own business. These courses led to a contract with the Santa Clara County Library District, teaching design thinking, prototyping, coding and even 3D printing.
