“You can’t connect the dots looking forward, you can only connect them looking back”… – Steve Jobs
There is no way to quantify the value of meeting the person who shows you how to finally start that venture you’ve always dreamed of, experiencing how Photoshop can turn your ideas into reality, or discovering you’ve always possessed a dormant aptitude for programming. Watching the seemingly random connections happen and businesses sprout up in and around Santa Barbara is what fuels us, and we live by a simple mantra; Give First.
