Happy Wednesday! What’s been fun over the last few months that I have been spending time in both Orange County and San Diego is the cross pollination that’s happening between the ecosystems. I can’t tell you how many times I come to an event in Irvine or San Clemente and run into a San Diegan who is interested in the topic or speaker. It’s a real treat that we have such a close proximity and can share the resources. To this point, San Diego-based 41Orange is putting on a great night of innovation talks that I am honored to be a part of. I’ll be talking about how technology has enabled tech ecosystems to mature and better benefit companies. If you can, join us Thursday 10/24 at 4pm at The Cove for the OC Innovation Summit .
Another great way to get to know what’s going on in OC is through Carey Ransom’sAccelerate OC podcast and I am excited for this latest addition with Grant Van Cleve . Grant was an investor in my first startup, Portfolium, with Tech Coast Angels and continues to help the ecosystem through mentorship, investing, and building a growing company of his own: Buy-It-Installed.
