Two great Venues!

Attend a special breakfast panel engagement with the heads of six Internet startups that are putting Southern California on the Venture-Tech map.


This event will take place simultaneously in two locations: Caltech in Pasadena

(four panelists), and Cross Campus in Santa Monica (two panelists).

The events at each location will be live video-streamed to the other location. Attendees in Pasadena will see four in-person panelists, plus a simulcast of the events in Santa Monica;  attendees in Santa Monica will see two in-person panelists, plus a simulcast of the events in Pasadena.  (Trust us, it should work ;- )
Event Preview:  

Southern California is now one of the top 5 destinations to launch a tech-startup. The companies being incubated, accelerated, launched and funded are aiming to disrupt markets across a broad spectrum: from e-commerce and financial services to Big Data, advertising, and social media.  Where did these companies come from? Who started them? What inspired them? What have they learned from their experiences? We have assembled a panel of six founder/CEOs from some of the first companies to emerge from local area accelerators. Come listen as they share their experiences and insights about what it takes to build a startup in Southern California. You will hear first-hand from those who are on the leading edge of a new generation of entrepreneurs.
