Vator (short for innovator) is one of the largest business networks dedicated to high-tech entrepreneurs.  Founded and run by veteran and award-winning journalist Bambi Francisco, Vator is an entrepreneur and investor community, with some 100,000 members and high-tech companies. VatorNews is Vator’s news site focused on innovation with about 500 contributors.


The next Vator Splash (LA) event is being held on the evening of May 30, 2012.

Like the SF event, the Splash LA event, hosted by Vator, is a single-track evening event and startup competition. Splash gathers leading entrepreneurs, innovators and financiers across technology to inspire and energize the audience about entrepreneurship and innovation.

Splash brings together high-caliber speakers who talk about how to build and scale great successful companies, how their industries are changing and the opportunities those changes are creating.

Splash also allows the audience to mingle with top venture capitalists and angels who are funding tomorrow’s next Google and Facebook. These influencers will give you insights into how they think when it comes to investments and they’ll also talk about their changing investment strategies in light of the emergence of super angels, angels, micro-VCs and incubators.  

See the speaker list and agenda

Finally, meet up-and-coming entrepreneurs with innovative ideas that could change the world.

Ten companies selected by their peers and vetted by VC judges will get a chance to present onstage with a three-minute presentation. The Splash event is the fourth round of a four-round process to find the top promising high-tech startup.
