Shasta Venture Hub
Join us for the first ever Startup Weekend in Redding, CA!
Shasta County is hosting its first Startup Weekend November 20-22 where participants will pitch, join a team, and build a viable business in one 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.

The owners of seven local Dutch Bros. coffee kiosks (soon to be eight!), the Resners bubble over with energy, philanthropy and a commitment to the community where they are raising their two young boys, Beckett and Rally. Chris and Erin, along with the Dutch Bros. team, have raised tens of thousands of dollars for worthy causes, including Make-A-Wish Foundation, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Adopt-A-Family and countless local fundraisers.
Chris began working at an Oregon Dutch Bros. in 1997, and after attending art school, he opened his first shop on Churn Creek Road in Redding in April 2004, when he and four employees covered every shift. Since then, the Resners have added five more shops in Redding and one in Palo Cedro.
The couple, who met at Bible study and married almost seven years ago, have earned numerous accolades for their work. In 2012, Erin Resner was named the ambassador of the Record Searchlight's "20 Under 40," which honors young people who are making a difference in the community. In 2011, the couple won the Greater Redding Chamber of Commerce's VirgilCovington Legacy Award. Two years earlier, Chris Resner was awarded Humanitarian of the Year by the North State chapter of the California Restaurant Association. Chris and Erin are both involved in community projects organizations and have contributed greatly to where we stand today.
