We’re proud of all that we’ve accomplished with the Innovate Pasadena Connect series of events, and we are awed to see the growth that we have achieved since Connect Weekend 2014. Our goal with Connect Week is to strengthen Pasadena’s innovation ecosystem by engaging and uniting the broader community in a festival of discovery and idea exchange. We couldn’t make Connect Week happen without the help of our community partners, and this year we're once again inviting meetups, trade associations, networking organizations, and other industry groups across the Los Angeles area to join us and as one of our community partners and help cross-promote this growing celebration.
As a Connect community partner, you will receive recognition on our website with our other community partners, as well as two tickets to the Innovate Pasadena Big Bang Block Party. In return we ask that you:
If you'd like to join our network, please complete our volunteer form and select “Community Partner”. We'll send you a discount code good for 2 free tickets to our Innovate Pasadena Pop-up Party, a link to all the digital assets you'll need to cross-promote Connect Week, and a special Innovate Pasadena Pop-up Party dicount code to share with your members.
Help us spread the word! Tweet, blog, pin, snapchat, tag, invite, record... Let's get everyone talking about #Connect16. Pasadena is a force to be reckoned with, and it's time we let the Internet know. Not sure where to start?
Send out event details to your contact list, Meetup members, or newsletter subscribers. Don't forget to mention your event and Connect Week at your next meetup or in person every time you have a chance. There's no better way to give your network a sneak peek into your Connect event and have them marking their calendars.
Share your event details, behind-the-scenes preparations, and photos with @InnovatPasadena. We'll help drum up excitement and tweet about our collaborators as much as possible. Don't forget to submit your event to be listed on the Connect calendar.
We encourage events that foster collaboration between industries and partners rather than a typical meetup. If you’re looking to expand your reach, remember that there is strength in numbers. Teaming up with another group can help you look beyond your regular constituency.
Add the Innovate Pasadena Connect Week badge to your website or Meetup page. Scroll down to the Connect Week Badge section to get the code. As we get closer to game time, we’ll let you know where you can pick up posters, programs, and other materials. Hang the provided collateral in a visible area in and outside your space to make it easier for people to find you.
Take photos, notes, etc., to share with the Pasadena community before and after your event.
