What we're about

Welcome to Startup Founders & Investors Orange County! Do you have startup ideas or want to start your own business? Maybe you’re a serial entrepreneur, a skilled developer, or a marketer looking to go out on your own, or corporate life simply isn’t for you?

We bring together startup co-founders, advisors, and partners to help you to get your business off the ground or to take it to the next level for OC entrepreneurs with software, hardware, and technology-related ideas and growth companies.

We are local entrepreneurs from Irvine, Costa Mesa, Laguna Beach, Newport Beach, Tustin, Santa Ana, Mission Viejo, Lake Forest, Huntington Beach, Anaheim, and across Orange County who want to succeed and share our success as entrepreneurs. Please join us!

We regularly help our members with questions about finding profitable niches, web development, new product creation, internet marketing, SEO, raising venture capital, business plans, social media marketing, blogging, email systems, domain names, mobile app development, staffing/recruiting/outsourcing, UI/UX, legal issues, angel investors, e-commerce, PPC advertising, Amazon fulfillment, joint ventures, affiliate marketing, graphic design, crowdfunding, and more.

A service of the OC Startup Council (OCSC) (https://ocstartupcouncil.org/), our events are dedicated to supporting early stage venture founders and accelerating high tech entrepreneurship in Orange County. https://OCstartupcouncil.org (https://ocstartupcouncil.org/)

This Meetup is an extension of Scott Fox's MasterMinds Startup Entrepreneur Coaching Forum (http://www.mastermindsforum.com) - the friendliest, most helpful online resource for solopreneurs, startup founders, entrepreneurs, and small business owners.

These in-person Meetups complement the online platform by bringing together entrepreneurs looking for co-founders with those people looking to join someone else's startup as a core team member.

Anything you may be facing in your own entrepreneur adventures, someone in the group will be able to help you.
