Announcing The socalTECH 50, 2015 Edition

socalTECH

It's a thankless, unforgiving, made more difficult in that there are no repeats on this list from our prior two years (many were nominated), and our specific exclusion of serial entrepreneurs (who make up a big chunk of Southern California's startup activity), and our exclusion of the influencers from the venture capital, angel investing, and finance side of the industry, in addition to service providers. Congratulations to our third class of the socalTECH 50!

Thanks to socalTECH's Sponsors!
