Introduction to the Startup Challenge Workshops

The Introduction to the Startup Challenge workshops help you learn how to compete in the Challenge – the rules, eligibility requirements and competitive divisions of Startup Challenge Monterey Bay. They provide an overview of the competition, including the deadlines and what to expect, and instructions about how to complete the application – your first step to starting your business! You may even get a chance to share your pitch and receive some initial feedback to help you become a finalist! Download and view the online workshop here:
