Startup Weekend returns to the Santa Barbara area November 10, 11, and 12, 2017!

The original Santa Barbara organizing team and catalysts behind the first event in Santa Barbara are back and joined by an amazing group of co-organizers. With support from StartupSB and THE SANDBOX’s partners… this is an event to not miss.

Our first 4 events were some of the biggest Startup Weekend events in the world.  The events created a number of companies that are still continuing to grow and succeed.. CreatorUp, SmartStones, and the original team that became Snapwire all got their start at one the first 4 Santa Barbara Startup Weekends.

Now it is time to do it all over again.
