1st Mondays

Connect with the Best of San Diego’s Startup Community

What are 1st Mondays?

Every quarter we host 1st Mondays on the first Monday of the month, San Diego’s startup community comes together for an expert panel, share information, support one another and create long-lasting relationships over delicious food and cold beer.

Startup San Diego provides the space for the networking magic to happen, all you need to do is show up! This is your chance to connect with other startup enthusiasts, exchange ideas, meet potential investors, and learn what’s making news in the startup community.

Give yourself something to look forward to when you’re hit with the Monday morning blues!

What to expect?

Our 1st Mondays events are growing each year, and we now have an average of around 250-300 people attending each event. From investors to new startup owners to students, industry professionals, the crowd is very diverse, but we all have one thing in common—we’re there to network!

Arrive on time to say hello and check-in with one of our wonderful volunteers at the door. They will help you answer any questions regarding 1st Mondays and let you know about any upcoming events.

Every quarter, we meet at a different location. Make sure to follow us on social media (LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) for the latest updates on each event.

Our 1st Mondays events do sell out quite quickly, so be sure to buy your ticket in advance (we recommend at least a week in advance). Hurry and get your ticket for the next 1st Mondays today!
