Do You REALLY Need to be in the Bay Area?

Saturday, January 11, 2014
Baxter Lecture Hall, Caltech
Registration and Continental Breakfast: 8:00 a.m.
Program: 9:00 a.m. - 11:15 a.m.

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.
