TEDx Temecula!
October 29, 10 am to 4 pm
Old Town Temecula Community Theater

If you’ve been to previous TEDxTemecula conferences, you already know this is a once-a-year opportunity to have a local TED-like experience for a fraction of what it would cost to attend a global TED event.

Together, we can spark conversation, connection, and community! There are still people in the valley that don't know what TED is or that TEDxTemecula exists. Tell a friend, family member, or coworker.

Remember. One idea can change a family, community, or the world. Click Here for more info or to register.


Don't forget - every week -

1 Million Cups Riverside! Wed 8:30 am


Come to our weekly 1 Million Cups Riverside event every Wed morning from 9 am to 10 am. at Back to the Grind in downtown Riverside! Doors open and the coffee starts flowing at 8:30 am.

Two companies come in and tell us what they are up to, and our startup community figures out how we can all pitch in and get them to the next level. This is a great way to spend a Wednesday morning, meeting new friends and fellow entrepreneurs while helping other startups come up with new strategies and resources.

If you haven't been to Back to the Grind yet, you have been missing out! It's a great eclectic coffeehouse located at 3575 University Avenue. The picture is of the downstairs area where we will be holding our events. Pick up a cup of free coffee upstairs, courtesy of Darren and Back to the Grind, then come downstairs to join the fun. Every week is a new experience! Click here to let us know you are coming, or you can apply to present at our next 1MC event.


Every week we get together to brainstorm, share war stories, talk about exciting ideas - you name it! This is a totally unstructured Kasual Koffee event that is designed to not be designed. Meet new people, get feedback on your ideas or share your opinions on others' ideas - whatever you want.

One thing we guarantee - there will be other entrepreneurs and inventors, free coffee, and time to unwind and let your mind go wild.

Everyone is invited to join us every Saturday morning from 9 am to noon. We'll have the coffee, you bring your stories and enthusiasm! We are at the Murrieta Innovation Center, 26442 Beckman Court in Murrieta. Saturday morning is time for Kasual Koffee!
