The South Bay Entrepreneurial Center empowers innovation for startups and emerging businesses. We provide education, mentorship and access to capital to help companies build and grow. Since we started in 2011, we have helped a diverse group of startups and emerging businesses. Our incubator program guides startups and our accelerator program serves more established businesses. Our specialist mentors offer education on a variety of key business subjects, such as business development, fundraising, legal matters, human resources and accounting. The companies we work with will attest to the value of our educational programs, a community of entrepreneurs and access to valuable resources.
