Get ready for something new

Our inaugural Startup Month Incubator, in collaboration with Techstars, will culminate with a Demo Day showcase at the end of October. Ryan Kuder, Managing Director of Techstars Anywhere virtual accelerator has been instrumental in supporting Startup San Diego to craft the experience of our first ever Startup Month completely virtual incubator. We'll be working with 10 companies throughout the month at no cost and no equity to provide expert training, mentorship and community to help grow and scale their startups.

Surrounded by experts

We have "Incubator Commanders" joining us from companies like Silicon Valley Bank, Pillsbury, GoFundMe, PetDesk, Hubspot, and Move the Needle to name a few. Our EIRs will be serving as "Mission Specialists" to support the 10 companies throughout their month long journey. It is the goal to be able to incubate this class of entrepreneurs throughout the month and drive connections, exposure, and warm landings to ecosystem partners, support organizations, accelerators, and investment opportunities.

Why should you care?

Our primary goals for demo day are to have the companies gain exposure and put them in front of investors if they are raising a round of funding. We are inviting a bunch of VCs and angel investors to attend the demo day in addition to the greater San Diego startup community. Voting on the winning company will be determined by the EIRs & mentors in the incubator program as well as the public attending the event. While there isn't prize money in this year's demo day, the winning company will have claim to the title of the winner of the inaugural Startup San Diego Incubator Demo Day - we're also working on some goodies from some of our sponsors.
