As Skyriver IT has grown its network around San Diego, I have been surprised by the strength and vibrancy of the entrepreneurial community here. While Silicon Valley and Route 128 near Boston are known as entrepreneurial hubs, San Diego is not very well known for its entrepreneurial community. However, it should be.
Several years ago, we joined the San Diego Venture Group (SDVG) and were very impressed with the caliber of people there and the impressive businesses being started in San Diego. Recently, we became a sponsor, because we really liked what they are doing. However, this is just one of the groups that does so much to support the San Diego entrepreneurial community. Two other groups, CommNexus and CONNECT, are also trying to help new businesses in San Diego succeed. Plus there are incubators, angel investors, and investment groups.
