Events For January 11, 2013

Where should you build your startup?
Location:Pasadena
Where should you build your startup? Do You REALLY Need to be in the Bay Area? Caltech Entrepreneurs Forum. Southern California's startup community has come a long way, but has it fully emerged from the Bay Area's shadow? Although companies, such as Cornerstone OnDemand, Snapchat and Maker Studios, grab headlines, the engine of this community is comprised of hundreds of entrepreneurs quietly building products and services that soon will disrupt established industries. A vibrant community of mentors, investors, accelerators and events has emerged to support these entrepreneurs and their companies. Yet, the allure of the Bay Area still beckons companies to move north. 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. Panel includes: Eva Ho, Factual; Pam Kramer, Lightt; Holden Steinberg, NearWoo; Robyn Ward, UTA; Joanna Widenmiller, 1-Page. See http://www.entforum.caltech.edu/
