What we're about

Welcome!

At Startup Speakers, we are passionate about creativity -- that's why we 'startup' early 🐛🐦:

• Meeting Starts at 7:15 AM until 8:30 AM

• Every Wednesday Morning

• @Plug and Play Tech Center in Sunnyvale, CA.

As an official Toastmasters club, we're about improving our public speaking and leadership skills 💪. As a Silicon Valley club, we're about entrepreneurial innovation and nailing your next pitch deck opportunity 💡.

Put it all together -- along with fresh brewed coffee ☕️ and some bananas 🍌-- and you've got Startup Speakers Toastmasters 🔨💚🎤. We invite all with similar interests.

Come and check us out!

Directions to Plug N' Play Tech Center in Sunnyvale - Plug N' Play Tech Center is centrally located in Sunnyvale at 440 North Wolfe Road coming from Lawerence Expressway, Central Expressway or Interstate 101.

Although there are multiple parking lots at PnP Tech Center we highly encourage that you park at the lot at the front entrance on the corner of Wolf Road and Stewart Drive (facing the Lowes Shopping Center on the other side) and enter as a guest at the front with security. There is complimentary 3-Hour Parking for Guests near the front entrance lot. We normally meet in Sierra Madre Conference Room, however, during seasonal or event changes please check in with the front desk. Please call Club President Hana Dave at 510-709-6037 for additional information or questions.
