Do You REALLY Need to be in the Bay Area?
Baxter Lecture Hall, Caltech
Southern California’s startup community has come a long waybut has it fully emerged from the Bay Area’s shadow? Although companies, such as Cornerstone OnDemand, Snapchat and Maker Studios, grab headlines,
In this very unique program, we will bring together local and SF-based entrepreneurs to discuss the resources in their startup communities that made a difference in building their companies. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage in a dialogue with the speakers and ask questions about how to build a successful company in Southern California.
This program is designed for entrepreneurs, VCs, angel investors, advisors, strategic partners, service professionals and vendors in the startup community. Key Questions we will seek to answer are:
- Do you need to relocate to the Bay Area to raise money?
- Can you access the Bay Area’s benefits while remaining in Southern California?
- What resources are unique to Southern California that startups can access today?
- What has worked and what hasn’t for SF’s startup community and how can we apply those lessons here?
