Global from the Get-Go: Global Manufacturing for Startups Summit Clarifies the Path from Prototype to Market

October 27, 2017 @ 8:30 am PDT

Join your entrepreneurial-minded peers at the Global Manufacturing for Startups Summit later this month, hosted by the Santa Barbara City College Scheinfeld Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation. The Summit will be held from 8:30 a.m. – 2:15 p.m. on Friday, October 27, with networking to follow until 2:45 at The Fess Parker Resort in Santa Barbara, and is designed to help startups successfully navigate the manufacturing process and avoid common pitfalls.

Attendees will be given a 360-degree view of the global manufacturing process, including the logistics of manufacturing products both globally and domestically, and insight on incorporating these essential skills into their own growing business, business consulting practice or college or high school curriculum.

“In our global economy, it has become increasingly important for our future business leaders to understand what it takes to be a successful manufacturer, particularly if they want to conduct business internationally,” said Julie Samson, Director of the Scheinfeld Center. “In addition to providing this important information to entrepreneurs directly, we’re also working with educators and consultants to create a stronger foundation of knowledge that they can then share with their students and clients.”

The Summit will explore the manufacturing process step-by-step through three phases led by global manufacturing experts and panelists, and it will provide opportunities to connect with people and resources for assistance beyond the Summit.

The Global Manufacturing for Startups Summit is a free event, but seating is limited and attendees are required to RSVP. Visitglobalmanufacturingforstartups.eventbrite.com to RSVP and learn more.

For high school and community college Career Technical (CTE) Educators from the South Central Coast Region, stipends are available for developing a related classroom activity that integrates content from the Summit. 

If you have questions about the event, please contact Scheinfeld Center Director Julie Samson at jasamson@sbcc.edu or (805) 965-0581 ext. 3643.
