Startup Redding FAQs

What does “the most supportive startup community in the world” even mean?

Our vision is a culture of epic entrepreneurship in Shasta County, California. Starting and growing a business is hard for many reasons, but the most cited revolve around feelings of loneliness, self-doubt, and accountability. We believe community is the answer! Building the most supportive startup community in the world means challenging our community to contribute to each other’s successes through shared connection, resources, opportunities, and inspiration. We all want each other to succeed and when we can help we will.

When and where are the events hosted?

Our events are hosted throughout the year on different cycles and in different locations. If you’re checking out the community for the first time take a look at our events page, specifically the Founder Meetups (first Thursday of each month) and our Startup Sessions (third Thursday of each month). The exact venue can change from month to month but they are always in Redding.

Who are the startup events for?

We have unique events for entrepreneurs at all stages of the journey. These events are a time to connect, get feedback, and be inspired by all the amazing people and projects being built in our region. It doesn’t matter if you’re currently in the idea stage or growing with enough money to fill a swimming pool, this community has something for you.

What We Are:
• A community where everyone benefits because everyone contributes
• A hub for entrepreneurial support and accountability
• A team that will get you ready to be a successful leader in business

What We Are Not:
• A community for self-promotion
• A course or training program

What do the events cost?

Startup Sessions, Founder Meetups, Startup Advising, and Pub Pitch events are all 100% free! Our bigger events are funded with ticket sales. Startup Games and Venture Conference are two examples of paid events. Signing up for our emails + following our Instagram and Facebook pages is the best way to find out about upcoming events.
