8:30 am – 5 pm
The 10th Annual Bay Area Capital Connections (BACC10) convening brings together all local entrepreneurship ecosystem stakeholders into one space: SPUR Oakland, to accomplish collective goals with shared strategies.
Together, we will continue building a comprehensive structure for increased access and coordination, transcending silos, replacing roadblocks with on-ramps for diverse entrepreneurs seeking support and capital.
All entrepreneurship stakeholders are welcome! From mentors to banks, from VCs to government regulators, from bootcamps to co-working spaces, we will detail our shared vision ensuring more intuitive navigation for people of color, women, formerly incarcerated people, immigrants, people with disabilities, veterans, and young people on their journey towards full, vibrant economic empowerment.
