InSoCal CONNECT is rebranding the Inland region of Southern California as a center of innovation excellence and high quality of life. While primarily focused on the region bounded by Corona, Riverside and Temecula, we collaborate with all Inland Southern California entrepreneurs and organizations.

We act as the catalyst linking startups and technology companies with local government, universities, professional service providers and investors. This is done through our Springboard, Tech Transfer, Thought Leadership Series, Special Interest Groups and International Business programs.

The organization is modeled after internationally recognized CONNECT San Diego. In addition to nurturing the start-up community culture in the region, InSoCal CONNECT is working to drive export activity, encourage STEM education and supporting the growth of foreign and local capital resources in the area.
