Howdy all, I hope you’re having a good week. It is IPO city right now for OC companies! Between Viant, LoanDepot, Hancock Jaffe listing and then MeridianLink (and maybe Rivian?) coming up, it’s great to see some exits through going public. As always the hope is to unlock capital that works its way through the community into new companies, new investments, and new personal opportunity. Congrats all!
In the recent history of local tech, there’s been other great companies built in OC and SoCalTech has been covering them since 1999! Listen in to founder Ben Kuo on Operate’s podcast about what he’s seen through the ups and downs of building tech in SoCal.
