Los Angeles Startup Events

I recently posted about the Increase in Early-Stage Startup Activity in Los Angeles. In that post, I mentioned how one of the signals is the big increase in number of startup events and the number of attendees at those events. I realized that it has been a little while since I posted about the Los Angeles Startup Community and so needed to update my list of startup events that will be out of date almost before I finish publishing it.

Software Development Companies in Southern California

Yes, there are some events around particular technologies. Most networking events tend to either focus on specific technologies (PHP,Net, C#, Microsoft, LAMP, MySQL, Open Source, Hadoop, Java, etc.) For example, an online retailer probably doesn't see themselves as a technology company. I've helped organize the Los Angeles CTO Forum for almost 10 years.
