We are respectfully submitting our request to have the City of San Diego proclaim September 22, 2012 as “Entrepreneur Day”. Get involved with us and our special guest Mayor Jerry Sanders and other VIPs to cut the opening ceremony ribbon. Let’s “Discover, Recognize, Collaborate and Celebrate Entrepreneurship™” - For one day, if all of the entrepreneurial communities can come together it will only help the U.S. economy grow stronger as a whole.
In the race to be “America’s Most Entrepreneurial City”, this event is scheduled for Saturday, September 22, 2012 – from 10AM to 5PM with an after event party from 6PM to 9PM. The venue is located in the popular downtown East Village Business District, San Diego’s largest eclectic urban neighborhood with trendy warehouse-loft style buildings, adjacent to Petco Park. The East Village Association (501(c)3 Non-profit) is this event’s official community outreach partner.
San Diego Entrepreneur Day will inspire many people, including students, and bring confidence to those looking to take their business concepts to reality by meeting their peers. There will be potential collaboration and partnership opportunities with the event’s participating exhibitors, attendees and sponsors.
The goal and formula is to proactively help launch/ignite at least 500 Entrepreneurial Concepts/Small Businesses who would employ up to 5 people or utilize contractors/vendors. 500 startups X 5 would equal 2,500 new jobs/work in all vertical markets!
