A Tech startups founding team typically consists of a Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and a Chief Technology Officer (CTO).  These positions represent the foundation of every tech company in the universe.  Generally, the CEO oversees the business and the CTO, oversees the technology-end of the company.  Because these roles are very different, the personalities and backgrounds are likewise non-conforming.  Without these two people working as a team, your company will fail and dismantle.  However, if the CEO & CTO can find common ground, interact with ease and join forces, they will ultimately build an amazing company.

"The Odd Couple" event will teach you strategies on how to find common ground and build an effective relationship with your CEO & CTO.  Your panelists will be proven CEOs and CTOs who run some of the most incredible companies in LA.  Each pair has been chosen for their commitment to help TCD.LA members and their startups succeed!
