Entrepreneurial Stories- Startup SB's Event Recap

Go getters, aspiring entrepreneurs, and successful business people ascended on the loft for a night of inspirational storytelling. StartupSB was the mastermind behind this wonderful event, seeing their vision through to fruition once again as this was their second production like this. It was an event celebrating community, support and sharing ideas. Seven local entrepreneurs took to the mic to divulge their unique entrepreneurial journeys. They spoke of their ideas, risks, rewards, trials, tribulations, successes and satisfactions. Shout out to the speakers: Lee Abbott (Endorphin Entertainment), Shannon Graham (Success Coach), Peter Gaum (Santa Barbara Bar), Summers McKay (Summers Love Company), Daniel Colantanio and Matt Turner (Hustlers for Humanity SB)
