Late Friday afternoon, community members, tech workers, business owners and students gathered at California State University Monterey Bay to network over pizza, pitch ideas, and team up to work on ventures. By the end of the evening, developers, creatives and entrepreneurs joined forces to work on 13 of the original 25 pitches. From microplastic solutions to brewery payment apps, the 8th annual Startup Weekend Monterey Bay had no shortage of ingenuity.
