Celebrating die cut stickers and entrepreneurship at Startup Week Camarillo from Techstars

Startup Camarillo is a starting place for events and opportunities for startups, investors, students, and freelancers in Camarillo and surrounding areas of Ventura County, California. They have a die cut sticker with the Techstars branding and a little local twist in the snow globe. It's the perfect event sticker: simple and iconic. It's the optimal portable billboard for their logo and event platform.

Whether you're a student looking to learn, a founder looking for a team, or a startup looking to share your story, this Startup Week is the perfect starting point.

More About Startup Week

Techstars Startup Week brings entrepreneurs, local leaders, and friends together over five days to build momentum and opportunity around your community’s unique entrepreneurial identity. Join in a celebration led by entrepreneurs and hosted in the entrepreneurial spaces you love. Startup Week is one of the Techstars Startup Programs, alongside Startup Weeked and Startup Digest. These stickers see thousands of views.

Startup Communities

Boulder venture capitalist Brad Feld wrote a book about Startup Communities a few years back, and Camarillo is the prime example of a community that's looking long-term to realize success for their entrepreneurial business community.

Here's a talk from a few years back about his theories and how they are playing out around the world.

Over the course of five days, participants in Techstars Startup Week can choose the events they’d like to attend. Typically these events are held at various venues across a city. Speakers from the community, and outside it, are brought in to share their story to motivate and inspire the entrepreneurial community. Local organizers select the tracks they feel are most relevant to their community and choose speakers based on those tracks.

Event stickers help make connections

After Techstars Startup Week, participants find that they’re more connected to their community and no longer feel alone in their efforts. And they take their event sticker with them. They are then ambassadors in the support network that can make the difference between closing up shop and pushing through to success.

Try an event sticker for your next gathering, and you can try name tag stickers, logo stickers, or sticker sheets.

Startup Week Takes Over Baja, Mexico


We're proud to shout out this custom sticker sheet for Startup Week Baja down in Mexico. When it comes to event stickers, organizers and designers have an opportunity to capture attention from those in attendance, and this sheet delivers plenty of variety.

For Startup Week Baja, there are venues across the region with co-working and companies sites from Tijuana to Ensenada serving as venue hosts.

For their promotional sticker sheet, the designers put their sponsors front and center, and why not? These companies help produce the event, so they've featured the logos of sponsors. There's Techstars and Startup Baja, plus Startup Grind from Google for Entrepreneurs, Codiga Rosa and Codev Hacker/School. A nice way to thank these folks, plus give options for peel and apply.

Startup weeks really take a community, as office spaces, business center and co-working locations all provide the necessary services to give a professional presentation for these world-class events. For instance, attendees at the Hub Center will find private offices with trained personnel to answer calls, take messaging and welcome customers.

Title presenter Startup Baja has a methodology that's the result of multiple incubation processes of successful startups called "Lean Mentorship" where a team of Advisors and mentors led by a principal mentor support and advise startups in those business aspects. The Startup Baja methodology focuses on the business of each startup regardless of the stage of their development. Then they identify the key activities that establish the work plan tailored to each startup.

When it comes to startups, a lot goes into these ventures. Often there's competing organizational visions and technological, social and economic changes that dictate a new way of doing business, while in the middle of building the business.

Startup Week brings entrepreneurs, local leaders, and friends together over five days to build momentum and opportunity around a community’s unique entrepreneurial identity. At StickerGiant, we are happy to join in these celebrations led by entrepreneurs and hosted in entrepreneurial spaces.

A final thanks: to the organizers and hosts. Without these dedicated event staff, there would be no place to meet, no food to eat, and no projector for the slide show that's going to change the world. We've been backing Techstars events for years, and we are strong supporters of volunteer-led gatherings that benefit local communities. We provide stickers so these groups can spread their message and keep building a better future for their population.

The custom shape can travel and make a mark wherever it goes, leaving a lasting impression long past the event.
