The Why

Culture, Values, and Vision

Our Communities are Fragmented

Too many of us are working alone or against each other when we should be collaborating together

Many Are Lost

Heaps of people don't know where to start or where to go next in pursuit of their success

We Need to be More Aware

Most of us have no idea about the amazing people and resources around us

The Old Ways Don’t Work

We decided it was time to step up to the plate as leaders to do things better after 20 years of frustrations being entrepreneurs, active members in the community, and tech nerds.

We were tired of seeing the desperate and inexperienced be exploited by other events and organizations.

We were tired of networking events designed around collecting business cards, trying too hard to make a sale, or being sold to.

We were tired of sitting in on leadership meetings that didn’t result in any meaningful steps to achieve a long term vision.

We were tired of people working against each other instead of finding ways to collaborate to make our shared communities stronger.

We were not the only ones getting frustrated. We noticed you were too.

We Are the Antithesis to the Old Ways

Our beliefs that there are better ways to lead, do business, and succeed are why we started 805 Startups.

The new best practices of the Information Era have shown us how possible and beneficial it is to work together, even with would be competitors.

We are intent on leading by example and representing the values we want others to adopt.

Everything we do puts the community first and is designed to educate, inspire, and foster authentic relationships. 

This is why we try to be as inclusive and diverse as possible by organizing as many free events as we can.  It is why we view everyone as a potential collaborator and no one as a competitor.

Something Bigger Awaits

Our vision is to establish true economic ecosystems that benefit and connects all the stakeholders in a community.

Since 2016 we have been been doing everything to live up to those goals and support that vision.

In order to do that, you need to succeed and you need to work with us to help others succeed as well.

No one is working harder to support you, our local economy, and our shared communities.
