We’re proud of all we’ve accomplished with our Innovate Pasadena Connect Week series of events, and we are awed to see the growth we’ve achieved since we held our first Connect Weekend in 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 theLos Angeles area to join us as one of our community partners to help cross-promote this growing celebration.
As a Connect Week community partner, you will receive recognition on our website, as well as inclusion in our marketing efforts. In return we ask that you:
If you'd like to join our network, please complete our volunteer form and select "Digital Ambassador" from the checkbox options. We'll send you a link to all the digital assets you'll need to cross-promote Connect Week!

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 virtual or in-person meeting every time you have a chance. Give your network a sneak peek into your Connect Week event and have them mark their calendars.
Share your event details, behind-the-scenes preparations, and photos with us on Twitter @InnovatPasadena,Instagram @InnovatePasadena, and LinkedIn @innovate-pasadena. We'll help drum up excitement about our collaborators as much as possible. Don't forget to submit your event to be listed on the ConnectWeek 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.
As we get closer to game time, we’ll let you know where you can pick up posters, signs, 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.
