We are one. It’s on. Effective immediately. Mike Krenn and Dr. Silvia Mah are in as new leaders, with a combined team and board – and we’re anxious to get going, with plans to make an evolutionary and meaningful contribution.
We’re bringing you, our loyal members, with us too! Your ‘Member Only’ benefits will stay the same as we figure out all the details. Please put Summer Social, Venture Summit, and QuickPitch Fest on your calendars as well as MIP! And oh yea, we now have more BeachHead locations for you to utilize Connect w/ SDVG space internationally… Check out the offices here.
Both Connect and SDVG are focused on elevating entrepreneurs. Now combined, we are aligned in the mission to affect meaningful change. We plan to be entrepreneurial like the companies we support. We will be engaged with companies, mentors, regional leadership, and of course – investors.
Our goal is to serve entrepreneurs throughout their growth journey, from early stage through capital raise, through scale, and back through the cycle at exit. (The exit is not an exit, friends … we’ll find you!)
We also recognize the efforts of so many others in the community. It’s a big part of what makes the San Diego and So Cal region so great. We’re collaborative. And that’s important. From co-working spaces, to accelerators, to the many mentors and market influencers – our intent is to support and align. Together, we are all better.
Our region is experiencing exceptional momentum in the areas of startups and innovation, and with success comes new challenges. We love that. We are committed to leading the elevation of San Diego as a hub for innovation.
We will continue to grow with our community. With our combined resources, membership benefits including sponsor discounts and educational events will eventually increase. And we’re interested in what you would like to see happen too. If you have any questions, feel free to give us a call.
