What is Startup Weekend?
Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations. Participants create working startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks. All teams hear talks by industry leaders and receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurials. The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education. Whether you are looking for feedback on a idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Startup Weekends are the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.
Who is H2 Ventures?

I have previously worked in insurance services, AI-powered marketing SAAS, speakers, and MEMS industries fulfilling a wide variety of roles such as product, sales, hardware quality, and software engineering. Plus I'm a proud UC Santa Barbara alum!
In my free time, I like to both support the local startup community of Santa Barbara by curating the Santa Barbara Startup Digest, organizing the local Lean Startup Circle Meetup, and organizing/facilitating Startup Weekends globally. If you are interested in getting more involved in the local tech/startup community, check out our local community Facebook group: www.facebook.com/groups/SantaBarbaraTech
Globally I work with organizations like Techstars, Lean Startup Co, SXSW, and more to bring more startup programs to Santa Barbara.
