Innovate SoCal 2015

Innovate!SoCal was hosted last week, by the Long Beach City College.  250+ business owners from the Southern California area attended for inspiration, networking, and guidance for their own entrepreneurial endeavors.  A few big speakers included president of Long Beach City College Eloy Ortiz, Mayor Garcia of Long Beach, author of “All-In Startup” Diana Kander, Steve Isakowitz President of Virgin Galactic, David Delgado jet propulsion designer at NASA, and Intuit Consultant Jeff Zias.  I learned a few great things about technology, space, and the future of Long Beach.  My favorite part of the event was when two startups were awarded $50k each!  How cool is that?  Guests of the event can access all of the pictures online HERE.
