8:30pm - 9:00pm – Post-Program Networking
Reset San Francisco Founder Phil Ting will host a panel discussion with local and national experts on how the city can help local entrepreneurs Start Up in San Francisco. The discussion will crowd-source ideas from the community on how City Hall can streamline the process for San Franciscans to start their own businesses, encourage more small business economic development, and reduce the friction in the bureaucratic process.
Reset San Francisco raises the question: shouldn’t city government be as innovative and creative as the people of San Francisco? That’s why the organization is bringing together some of the most innovative members of the community – those driven to jump-start the San Francisco economy by turning their creative ideas into more jobs and more revenue.
Whether you want to start your own web-based company, sell a creative product, launch your own food truck, or meet other San Franciscans striving to start their own businesses, this event is an opportunity for you to network, to learn about required process to Start Up in San Francisco and to make your voice heard in what resources you need to actualize your endeavor.
Reset San Francisco believes the city should provide the resources for city residents to connect, communicate, and access information easily via Smartphone apps and an interactive website. We have the resources. We have the technology. We just need your ideas to make it happen.
