2nd Annual State of Tech and Startups Event a Success

Our 2nd Annual State of Tech and Startups event went incredibly well.

The objectives of the event were to:

  • Raise awareness for the startup activity in our area
  • Generate excitement for the activity
  • Give people a reason to get involved in the activity

We achieved all of that and more. As those that attended can attest to, there were a lot of new faces in the crowd.

Those new faces included the Mayor of Thousand Oaks, city council members, and executives from some of the largest corporations in Conejo Valley.

Let’s not forget the new faces that appeared on one of the most prestigious panel of speakers we have put together yet. They deserve a huge amount of gratitude from us all for their time and energies.

805 Startups is growing incredibly quickly and it has occurred with little more than word of mouth marketing powered by you, your friends, and the leaders in our community.

Keep that in mind and try to imagine what 805 Startups and you could do together with more resources.

Since the event, 805 Startups has been overwhelmed by your interest in getting involved with growing our group and our startup ecosystem.

We are very grateful for your interest in helping us accumulate more resources to accelerate that growth.

We want to thank our key sponsors for their support:
