The Pop Up Cafe @ Renaissance Marin

Renaissance Entrepreneurship Center (Marin)

The mission of Renaissance Entrepreneurship Center is to empower and increase the entrepreneurial capacities of diverse women and men, and thereby strengthen our communities through the creation of sustainable new businesses, new jobs, and the promotion of financial self-sufficiency.


The Pop Up Cafe at Renaissance Marin serves as both, a financial aid, and an introduction into the restaurant, music, and art business to hopeful entrepreneurs, who put their trade and business skills to the test, providing a unique space to the foodie, the concert-goer and the arty-crafty in our community.

Each last Friday of the month The Pop Up Café offers you the one-of-a-kind dining, musical, and visual affair everyone wants to have, featuring local innovative chefs, musicians, and artists showcasing their latest and best dishes, music, and crafst for a truly inimitable occasion.

The Pop Up Cafe is a venue that embraces innovation, and has a committment to nurturing and promoting a culture of entrepreneurship, fostering the appreciation for the birth of new local businesses in and by the community.

Our hope is that the Pop Up Cafe grows to be the hub where the Marin community chooses to come try unique food, listen to original music, and enjoy novel art in town.
