Event Description

What is Convergence? Convergence was created to connect college students with the tech-startup community. Since Startup Week is in the summer, and students tend be gone or busy, it provides an offshoot for students to explore and be educated about the local innovation ecosystem. 2019 marks Startup San Diegos 5th year organizing Convergence. It has become so popular that it has expanded beyond students to include all community members looking to begin or further their careers in the tech-startup ecosystem. The spirit of Convergence is one of radical inclusivity. Its an invitation to all of San Diego to get involved in the local startup community, glean valuable skills for growing and working at startups, meet mentors, and explore career opportunities. Convergence has become a cross between an Uncareer Fair and the Meetup of all the Meetups, supporting the local tech-startup ecosystem by getting people of all walks of life together to support the ecosystem, collaborate, and hopefully engineer serendipity. Between learning how to land a job at your favorite startup, or how to raise the first round of funding, Convergence 2019 is going to be jam-packed with opportunities for all to grow their knowledge base and acquire new skills.
