IMPORTANT: due to the exceptional heat, we've moved to a different venue at a state of the art new $28 million complex with air conditioning!
The event will take place in downtown Santa Monica, at the Grand Pavilion at St Monica's Caruso Community Center. The address is 725 California Ave, Santa Monica, CA 90403.
Free underground parking: Enter using the driveway on California Ave, and drive up then right to enter the free underground parking garage. After parking, proceed to the ground level and exit the elevator or stairs to the left and you'll see the Grand Pavilion.

ABOUT THE EVENT SERIES
This event is the fourth fireside chat hosted & organized by David C. Murphy as part of a fireside chat series called The Campfire, serving LA's startup community. The Campfire is a place to swap startup stories, reflect, and recharge for the journey ahead.
We kicked off with a packed crowd to hear SV Angel Founder/Managing Partner David Lee in April, followed by a May event with Greylock partner Josh Elman, and June event with renowned music manager and angel investor Troy Carter.
Stay tuned for details of our other upcoming events. (If you RSVP to this event, we'll keep you posted -- but if you can't make it to this event but just want to signup for the mailing list, you may do so on our website.)
Also be sure to check out the LA Tech Agenda, a report released by David with recommendations for strengthening LA's startup community.
