Event Details

SF Beta


Online ticket sales are sold out. However, tickets are still available at the door for $40 each.


SF Beta is San Francisco's best and biggest startup mixer, attracting founders, innovators, investors, and executives from Silicon Valley and beyond.

Our loosely structured event attracts over 500 people, and sometimes many more. We provide tasty gourmet appetizers and a full cash bar, along with live startup demos throughout the night.

Is Silicon Valley the new Wall Street? We're kicking off our fifth year with a brand new demo theme: Financial Innovation. In partnership with @robgarciasj and LendingClub, we have assembled a first class roster of a dozen hand-picked startups that are taking the financial industry by storm. If you care about your money, you won't want to miss this one.

• Free drink ticket for the first 150 attendees
• Free appetizers from 5-6pm. (Early birds get the worm -- or, in this case, the pizza.)
• 21+ venue; no minors admitted.
• Tickets are non-refundable, but can be transferred.
• There are no formal presentations or talks. Instead, startups give demos at tables across the venue, throughout the night.
• For more information, visit our website at www.sfbeta.com

Careersthatdon'tsuck“These events are great opportunities to meet like-minded counterparts, but they’re also great ways to check out your competition, meet collaborators and build up your courage.”
