OC Tech Happy Hour: 4-year celebration
August 29, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
A humble thank you,
That first event — I wasn’t sure if anyone was going to show up. We were at the Fashion Island Hotel in Newport Beach and we’d booked the Aqua Lounge bar area. At first, a few people to started trickling in. I would shake each person’s hand and introduce myself and learn more about who they were.
That first night, I maxed out my credit card buying people drinks.
We continued to host events at the Aqua Lounge, friendships were formed, business deals were made, startups were funded and we were growing rapidly as a movement and group in Orange County.
“Orange County tech and startups are on the rise! Let’s give Silicon Valley a run for its money, one beer at a time!”
We then started doing pitch competitions and brought in founders from billion dollar companies to speak and drop knowledge.
We’ve had Halloween VR experience parties on The Deck in Laguna Beach, launched viral content networks at the WeWork in the Spectrum Tower, enjoyed ocean surf views at Zimzala in Huntington Beach, and found our Lean Startup Hustle at Eureka Building in Irvine.
7,000 Orange County members strong and over 20,000 members in the National Tech Happy Hour network, let’s keep this train going with a new commitment for the community by the community to do even more events, drive even more activity and make Orange County the most badass place to start a company in the world!
We’re passionate founders, marketers, executives, investors and doers and we’re here to make a dent in the world.
Let’s get together and celebrate 4 years strong, and cheers to another decade!
We’re going all out and we’re here to give back to you. We’ll have the usual OC Tech Happy Hour hospitality paired with some special guest speakers and the best networking in Orange County at the newly renovated and refreshed Eureka Building Park Venue!
We’ll be revealing our plans for the next 2 years and show you how we’re going to make the community that much stronger.
A very, very special thanks to our co-host, David Fisher from Integra Ledger. A startup that originally pitched at an OC Tech Happy Hour over 3 years ago and now they’re the foremost and largest Legal Blockchain in the world!
Also a special thanks to BAMF Media — Badass Marketers and Founders — the premiere global Growth Hacking group and badass marketing agency.
Let’s rock this. Let’s make this the best event we’ve ever done. Share your favorite OCTHH moments with the hashtags #octhh #4years
