Introducing SacStarts

Freshness Warning
This article is over 10 years old. It's possible that the information you read below isn't current.

The dinners that Scott and I have been organizing have been growing. We’ve met a pretty amazing group of people and the dinners have resulted in good business connections for a number of participants.

As Scott and I looked at what we wanted to get out of the dinners, the idea of building a startup community started to grow. We realized that all the entrepreneurs, small tech companies, and great tech folks in the area didn’t have anywhere to go to connect with each other. There’s events and organizations for larger companies and even a big-ass $150/year professional organization for entrepreneur types. There’s nothing wrong with those organizations and some of our participants are members of them as well. But they don’t fit the informal feel that we’ve come to admire from groups like Stirr and the Barcamp movement.

So we decided to do something about it and SacStarts was born.

We’ll be continuing to run the dinners (the next one is January 17, RSVP on the site) and we’ll be adding on. A common complaint among people at the dinners is finding high-quality people to work with, so we’ll be launching a job board. The web site has a simple social networking component to it that will grow. There’s a couple of blogs that will focus on local tech startup news. And look for some larger events in the future.

If your business is looking to reach local startups and engineers, we also have sponsorship opportunities available. Just ask me about them.

I’m excited about the future growth of the Sacramento startup community and I’m hoping that SacStarts can help foster that growth.
