Welcome to BarCamp Sarasota-Bradenton
You may find that BarCamp attendees keep coming back for more. Why? We are dedicated to moving ourselves, our businesses and our local region’s best and brightest into a new era of leadership in Florida. We inspire connections and encourage sharing in business, technology, funding, education, design and other local industries.
We do this because we believe a community based on awesomeness helps everyone find solutions to challenges in business, or whatever it is that they do. There’s truly something here for everyone.
No agendas…just great conversation and with creative, smart and talented folks from around the area. If you have joined us before, you know I just described you. If you haven’t, now you know why you should show up.

Twitter, the online social networking platform that enables users to send and read 140-character messages called “tweets”, celebrates 9 years today. Happy Birthday, Twitter! Did you know that according to readwrite.com and Chris Messina’s own website, http://chrismessina.me, #barcamp was the very first hashtag? Tweeted by Messina in 2007, the #barcamp hashtag connected folks who wanted to follow conversations about “global technology unconference gatherings called barcamp.”

“We need to build entrepreneurial capacity in this region (Sarasota-Bradenton),” states Stan Schultes. “We need to create a system that relies upon the skills and experience that currently reside here. We need to harness that intellectual property if we are ever to create tangible results.” So how do we do that? How do we create a self-sustainable program for the entrepreneurial space? Stan Shultes and Sara Hand have an answer, and it’s The Station 2 Innovation Center Project. The pair have pooled all of the resources available to them, and committed themselves to this project for the past year so that we now have a place for “Stone Soup” in our community.
