Chamber Startup Weekend Ventura County

About SWVC 2017

The mission of Startup Weekend Ventura County (SWVC) is to ignite innovations and facilitate the launch of scalable technology startups in Ventura County.

Our strategy is to create a highly collaborative environment for innovation amongst entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, universities, corporations and government agencies, and to do so with a focus on two industries of local importance, agriculture and healthcare.

In just 54 hours, you will experience the highs, lows, fun, and pressure that make up life at a startup. As you learn how to create a real company, you’ll meet the very best mentors, investors, cofounders, and sponsors who are ready to help you get started. Your community is here to help you.

Attendees will pitch their ideas to the audience in 60 seconds or less. After teams form, the rest of the weekend will be spent implementing the most popular ideas with the help of mentors and seasoned startup entrepreneurs.
