October 7, 2020 — Seaside, CA

We would like to share with you some highlights from the fourth annual Startup Investment and Community Capital (SICC) Expo that was September 28 – September 30, 2020. The theme of this year’s SICC Expo was Recovery and Reinvention: Inclusive Pathways to Capital. Among the many speakers and panelists were experts like Guy Kawasaki, Ben Jealous, and Congressman Jimmy Panetta (links to view their session recordings are below).

This year’s SICC Expo attracted over 500 attendees who participated in three days of presentations and panel discussions. In addition to three keynote addresses and 5 discussion panels, 19 innovative companies pitched their businesses to panels of 24 investors. This event provided businesses, investors, and the larger Monterey Bay community a forum for pathways to funding local and regional startup businesses.

A custom Expo website,, was built to house the recordings of the keynote presentations, panel discussions, pitch sessions, information about the companies that pitched, and information about the sponsors that supported the event. Due to the overwhelming positive response to the content presented on the Expo site, we have decided to make the event recordings publicly available!
