At Evolve Oakland, we cultivate, support and connect an entrepreneurial community of change-makers as they pioneer solutions for a world that works for all, by offering quality educational programs and an inspiring coworking space. In collaboration with our partners, we offer programs that deliver solid business skills to early stage businesses, and pitching and investor relations skills at the pre-seed stage. We couple these programs with membership in an entrepreneurial community to provide connections to an ecosystem of peers, mentors, investors, community leaders and government – all within an inspiring space that fosters collaboration & creativity.
