Well It has been a pretty busy week. Monday evening and all day Tuesday, was devoted to attending SoCal Keiretsu Forum Summit events and Wednesday attending the Los Angeles Venture Association’s Investment Capital Conference.
The K4 event took place in San Diego with 10 new companies pitching their businesses and three, who previously pitched, giving short updates on progress. There was also a social Monday evening where members got to talk and, in some cases, re-connect, while also getting a change to meet and talk with the companies who presented on Tuesday. Great food, nice atmosphere at the Jade Theatre and good conversation made for an enjoyable evening.
The LAVA event was to the Biltmore Hotel in downtown LA. It’s a great venue filled with photographs of past Hollywood events with lots of notable celebrities from the past. There was also a great luncheon speaker, Jerry Greenfield of Ben and Jerry fame who entertained the crowd of investors and entrepreneurs explaining how two guys who did almost everything wrong when they started their business, still ended up being wildly successful.
Since there is entirely too much to cover in a single post, I’m going to create some individual posts where I can do justice to some of the specifics.
