What We Do
Welcome to Ventech, Inc., the premier hub for business and technology innovation in the Central Coast region. Our mission is to build meaningful connections, educate, and inspire at the vibrant intersection of business, technology, and entrepreneurship. Through our signature events and programs, we create unique opportunities for learning, networking, and growth, catering to entrepreneurs and business leaders across Los Angeles, Ventura, and Santa Barbara counties.
Founded in 1986 as The Massachusetts Institute of Technology Enterprise Forum, we initially served the coastal business communities from our base in Ventura. Our roots in MIT's culture of innovation have shaped our approach to fostering entrepreneurship and supporting business growth. In 2021, we embraced a new identity as Ventech, Inc., marking a renewed commitment to our mission while continuing to draw inspiration from our prestigious beginnings.
