Innovation @ Menlo

Ayinde Banjoko“The Menlo College Startup Weekend sparked my passion for innovation. It reminded me why being an entrepreneur and being located in the Silicon Valley is one of the most exciting opportunities of a lifetime! There were many lessons I walked away with from this event, but most importantly I learned that when your passion, imagination, and work ethic are equally committed to something, you and your team become unstoppable.”

Menlo College Student Ayinde Banjoko, Class of 2020


Menlo College is located in the epicenter of innovation, with some of Silicon Valley’s most innovative companies right in our back yard. Innovation is central to Menlo’s strategic plan and is evident in the opportunities our students have as interns in Silicon Valley, in our entrepreneurship and design thinking courses, and in our support of entrepreneurial-minded students.

Contributions from Silicon Valley solution providers add to the vitality of the Menlo College community. Here are three partner organizations that provide invaluable support to the College.

Devil’s Canyon
Devil’s Canyon

The San Carlos-based brewery was established in 2001 by Menlo College alumnus and trustee Chris Garrett, class of 1994. La Cañada del Diablo was the name bestowed by the Spanish on the canyon that runs through Belmont and San Carlos, and that historical reference inspired the name of the brewery. Devil’s Canyon brews seasonal specialty and other beers, as well as a popular root beer – all products that make appearances at Menlo College events, thanks to the generosity of owners Chris and Kristiann Garrett.

VIVE Virtual Reality provides a fully-immersive experience that engages sight, sound, and touch. The room-scale tracking technology transports users to a chosen reality where, as active participants, they can physically walk around an environment and interact with surroundings as if they’re actually in them. The equipment and software donated by VIVE allowed Menlo College to launch a virtual reality lab, housed within the campus Innovation Center.
