Note: As we reach capacity for this event, please feel free to sign up for the waitlist or check out the February 9th iteration of this class, taught by community leader and founder of Coloft, Avesta Rasouli. We will only have seats available for the first 100 attendees. The rest will be invited to listen to the lecture from standing space. 


This free class is an orientation to help newcomers to the startup scene get acquainted with the exciting world of tech in Los Angeles. We will canvas key events/meetups to attend, people, companies, VCs, blogs, hot issues, and more. Learn the role of key players such as Los Angeles UX & UI Meetups, Startup Weekend, Creative Mornings, Maker Studios, Machinima, Nation Builder, Factual, Riot Games as well as Launchpad LA and the Accelerator / Incubator ecosystem. After class you are welcome to network with a number of prominent folks in the ecosystem.

Join us afterwards for beer and wine with the members of the LA Tech Happy Hour Meetup.
