With the Holiday season upon us and 2017 winding down, startup & innovation events in the Sacramento region are going to be pretty slim for the next couple of weeks. While 2018 is still around the corner, there are already a few startup events on our radar that are worth pointing out to help you plan for the new year. Following are some of the bigger events we already know about. There will of course be lots of workshops and classes throughout the upcoming year, but the events below are larger events of interest to entrepreneurs and innovators. Details on most are still vague, but we’ll share more information as we get it.

Here at StartupSac HQ we also have some ideas on bigger events that we hope to organize ourselves, but those will depend on lining up funding from sponsorships and/or grants. We’re actively working on those as well and will let you know when we have things lined up a bit better. In the meantime, enjoy the holidays, take a break to enjoy friends and family, and rest up for an exciting 2018 in the Sacramento startup community.
