Would you like to spend a few days in the heart of Silicon Valley?
Join the Startup Embassy family! Even if the calendar shows no availability, get in contact with us!
In the past year, we have hosted amazing entrepreneurs from all around the world: Spaniards, Russians, Brazilians, Poles, Indians, Germans, Mexicans, Japanese – just to name a few! So we all are happily connected and you could also be part of our network.
We've helped all of them meet a lot of “must-know” people from Silicon Valley to get the best for their journey and future plans for their startups (see the excellent reviews on our profile).
We’ll provide you with everything you will need to experience the startup and Silicon Valley way of life:
- A cozy bed to have great conversations or pitches with your neighbors – and to get a good night’s sleep!
- A co-working space with free, high speed Internet
- An international group of colleagues from all over the world coming to weekly dinners and BBQs
- Information about all high tech networking events taking place in Silicon Valley and the San Francisco Bay Area on a weekly basis, which people from our house attend together
- Kitchen access and cooking experiences with your fellow coworkers where you will share Paella, Schnitzel, Ceviche, Chapati with chicken curry and some drinks like Dos Equis, Heineken, König Pilsener, Kronenbourg and more
- Several bikes with locks available so that you can use them
- Free, safe and easy parking if you have a car
- Tips about the best way or transportation to get from any place you want to any other in the Bay Area or for trips to Yosemite or Lake Tahoe for example
We are 10 minutes away biking distance from places like the California Ave. Caltrain Station that can easily take you to every part of Silicon Valley you want from San Jose to San Francisco.
Interaction with Guests
Startup Embassy is a community of like-minded international tech entrepreneurs. Our experienced team lives in the house; they’re entrepreneurs just like you. We also get daily visits from one of our mentors who is a mentor in 500 Startups and Singularity University.
Staying at Startup Embassy is about the experience so we make sure we’re always there with you. Silicon Valley HBO’s series? They are based on us ;)
We only accept entrepreneurs working in their startups, so please provide a description of you and your venture. A Linkd-In profile would also help.
We will make some special exceptions if you can provide a good story about your entrepreneurial spirit in a personal message.
Please understand that this is an office and people are working.
The basic guidelines are to use common sense, respect others while they are working or sleeping and clean after yourself, we really want a clean space for everyone to enjoy.
smoke far away from the building (non smoking building)
clean your dishes right away
be conscientious of morning and late night bathroom usage
try not to snooze your alarm
use earphones, not speakers (unless it's a family event)
I love everything in Startup Embassy. Carlos and Patri are both amazing people with dreams and spirit of startups. They gave me a big favor of taking me to Startup Grind event which I never expected and I indeed had great fun of them. The room is cozy, clean, feeling like a home and definitely will be priority of staying in Silicon Valley no matter I will be rich or not. Startup Embassy is us, for startups and investors who really know startup spirits.
The stay was awesome, I met a lot of guests and they all shared my startup interests, including Carlos & Patricia, the hosts, who were very kind and eager to help. Also the neighbourhood is really good and safe, you have shops
If you are an entrepreneur and don't know where to stay? THIS IS THE PLACE!

If you are an entrepreneur visiting Silicon Valley, Startup embassy is the place to be in. I was recommended by a friend to stay there, and I loved the overall experience - they have a co-working space, nice barbeque and most importantly, you will be staying with startup entrepreneurs. The place is beaming with energy and enthusiasm!
This was my second time in Startup Embassy. I chose it because it is the best place to meet awesome startup people and the house provides very nice office space for me to work on my project. The location is perfect and close to locations where many interesting meetup and events were held.
The house manager Fernando is excellent. He was always nice, friendly and helpful.
I missed SE and will visit it again in my next trip to San Jose.
I stayed at the Embassy for only two days, but it was a great experience for me.
There are guests from various countires, and everyone is eager and ambitious,and has their own entrepreneurship; some are planning their own business and some are doing rehearsal of speech for the demo-event.
I got power from them!!
If you want to do your own business in SiliconValley, you should stay there!!

I am an Entrepreneur, a dreamer and an avid learner. I love how missing features on a product can actually be a feature. Less is more.
