Good to Know About: 805 Startups

One of the most overlooked aspects of business, is the community and environment in which it exists.

Whether you’re a soloprenuer or running a team,  it’s easy to get caught up in the small details, and lose the big picture of your business.

That’s where these guys come in…

805 STARTUPS

805 Startups is “focus[ed] in cultivating strong relationships with corporations and local government along the 101 corridor and giving them a platform to establish symbiotic relationships with startups…For startups, they gain industry insights, potential strategic partners to accelerate their growth, mentors & advisors, and a pathway to exiting in their future,” as is detailed in their mission statement.

Basically, 805 Startups takes a wide lens looking at the larger ecology of a business– they see where, why, how, and what purpose a business or organization is serving in the greater community in which it is built, and whether or not there’s a successful, well-functioning relationship.

They’re offering a invaluable resources and a support system for anyone in the 805 who is venturing to manifest their vision of business or high-level organization, and take it to the next level through connecting you with:

  • Mentors

  • Discounted Services From Our Partners/Sponsors
  • Constructive Feedback
  • Consulting Services
  • Warm Introductions

As well as hosting events designed to help you develop:

  • Awareness

  • Opportunities

They often hold free events in the local area (some right in here in Downtown Ventura ‘hood)– to welcome and educate peeps on what they’re all about.

The next event is an Investor/Start Up Job Fair coming up November 29th, 2017 at the Agoura Event Center.

If you decide these guys are on your side, they offer these opportunities on a membership basis, with different levels and options available to fit your business needs.

I figured this is good stuff to know, and wanted to let ya in the loop. I’ll be at that next event, and hope to connect and see you fellow Ventura Connect co-workers there.
