Start Peninsula

Friday, November 2, 2018

Start Peninsula is a weekend-long event to stimulate entrepreneurial growth in the local community by connecting early stage businesses to validation, opportunities and resources. Start Peninsula combines a pitch competition with business education and a celebration of our local entrepreneurial ecosystem. Dozens of entrepreneurs connect with business leaders and mentors during this exciting event that showcases early stage businesses. Jason Calacanis will be the keynote speaker for the event. Calacanis is a serial entrepreneur, angel investor, podcaster and writer. Calacanis has invested in 150 early-stage startups including six that have already achieved billion-dollar valuations. Thirty businesses will be invited to pitch and three winners will be selected. Winners will receive $5,000 to fuel their business growth and free access to local resources. Business can apply to pitch on the Start Peninsula website. Start Peninsula is also seeking mentors.
