With more than a dozen of various types of business training events Impact Hub Santa Barbara will celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week for innovators looking to turn big, back-of-the-napkin” ideas into viable businesses.
One of the key events is Seed Spot’s two-day Launch Camp, which immerses new entrepreneurs in education, training and support to take their concepts from idea to businesses.
During the program, entrepreneurs will have access to content experts, mentors, Seed Spot’s curriculum and many colleagues. The camp includes an evening when the entrepreneurs pitch their ideas to the community, discuss potential roadblocks in their projects and receive feedback.

“Not only will you have access to a diverse list of workshops, you will be able to collaborate and pitch your ideas to the most innovative mentors in the community,” said Breanna Chandler, Impact Hub marketing and events manager.
Global Entrepreneur Week presents opportunities for professional development with workshops in areas of finance, marketing and sales as well as exposure to business leaders.
Networking opportunities abound with speakers, pitch parties and expos so that can help business people at any stage of the startup process. The main theme of the week is to provide tools to aid entrepreneurs in growing and succeeding.
Impact Hub continues to create a community in which an entrepreneur can access the people and skills they need to start and scale their company, Chandler said.
