Coach an Event

Coaching is a great way for established entrepreneurs, developers, designers and advisors to help the emerging startup community of the greater Monterey Bay region.

Startup Monterey Bay, a project of the Institute for Innovation and Economic Development and California State University Monterey Bay, organizes several startup competitions that foster economic development in the region. These competitions, Startup Hackathon, Startup Weekend Monterey Bay and the Startup Challenge Monterey Bay provide students and community members with opportunities to bring their emerging ideas to market.

As an experienced entrepreneur, developer, attorney, or designer you can help bring new ideas to market or new solutions to pressing social issues.
