*UPDATE: Alliance for SoCal Innovation Hosts First Two Showcases
The Alliance for SoCal Innovation, created last year to unify the innovation ecosystems of OC (Digital Coast), Los Angeles (Silicon Beach) and San Diego (Biotech Beach), will host its first events — in Silicon Valley on May 24 and in Los Angeles on June 20.
The alliance brought together a group of tech, university and research institute leaders, including UCI’s innovation center, Applied Innovation.
On May 24 , the alliance will host its first SoCal Innovation Showcase in Silicon Valley (see details here). Select SoCal entrepreneurs will travel to Silicon Valley to pitch to investors there. More than 100 Northern California investors are expected to attend. The event will also feature a panel with innovation leaders speaking about opportunities for Silicon Valley investment in SoCal.
A similar event will take place in L.A. on June 20. (see info here)
