We Accelerate Your Success

805 Startups is on a mission to improve your community and local economy. 

To do that we need to support your growth and success.  That is because we can not have a thriving community or a growing economy without you.

Everything we do is built around inspiring people, educating people, promoting both professional and personal growth, and encouraging us all to find ways to support one another.

Authentic Relationships

We help you forge real connections to people you want to support and want to support you in return, for the long term--rather than simply collect business cards.

Education and Inspiration

We give you access to mentors, industry experts, and thought leaders to promote your personal and professional growth.

Community Events

We provide you with events that serve as a catalyst to bring us all together and collaborate as a unified and supportive community.

Whenevents we spend time working with the government, educational organizations, non-profits, and various businesses to understand how we can better support community development and economic development across Southern California.

Additionally, we offer a variety of services to provide you with more hands on support to fuel your growth and success.

805 Startups Needs Your Support

Become a Full Member, Sponsor, or Client to ensure we can expand on our mission to grow individuals and communities

Why We Need You

Alon and I decided to turn a successful meetup group into something much more ambitious in January 2017.

We set out to unify a very fragmented region made up of smaller cities outside of LA’s bustling Silicon Beach and Downtown areas.  Our region suffers from the perception that investors, startups, entrepreneurs, talent, jobs, and resources can not be found here.  This perception is caused by how disconnected we are as individuals, organizations, and government agencies.  

To overcome that we have been organizing a steady line up of events that are free to attend and open to the public. These events serve as a catalyst to bring everyone across the region together as a single community, to educate people about the opportunities and resources in their backyard, and to change their perception–you don’t need to leave the area to pursue success.

Alon and I have been doing this almost entirely alone and out of our own pockets.  The priorities have been on growing the largest, high quality network of people from all walks of life and on demonstrating to all of you what benefits and value we offer.

We are at the point now where we feel extremely confident with what we have demonstrated. We are ready to take 805 Startups to the next phase of growth for your benefit.   

We need to do this together. We need your support to generate enough revenue to not only expand on what we have built thus far and improve on the already wonderful experiences we bring you.

This has been an amazing journey thus far. Few things are as rewarding and fulfilling as leading the community through 805 Startups. We have helped people of all ages and backgrounds to not only find their way to pursue a dream, but we have helped some achieve their dreams.  We get to inspire and educate people while helping people build meaningful relationships. Alon and I want to see 805 Startups reach its next phase.

The journey has only just begun, and we hope you join us in taking the next step forward with 805 Startups.

To do so, please register as a Full Member, a Sponsor, or a Client. You can learn more below.

Thank you.

Authentically,

Gary Livingston

President & Director of Experience
