Event description

Description

Join us for a rare networking event and a panel discussion on the evening of Wednesday, December 14th!

Because of Digital Karma's large professional network in the Design and Development field in LA, we get asked a lot about how to be self-employed and how to handle legal & tax requirements. In response to this, we have organized an event to educate and inform the tech community.

This event is for you if you are:

  • New to an industry and need to freelance in order to gain industry experience and build your portfolio.
  • Ready to start (or have recently started) your own business.
  • Ready to be your own boss but concerned about contracts, taxes, and health insurance.
  • Looking to build your network with others in the tech industry.

In our panel discussion, you'll hear tips and nuggets of wisdom from local Attorneys, Tax Professionals, and Seasoned Self-Employed individuals about how to be successfully self-employed!

Beer, wine and snacks will be served!

Event Schedule:

  • 6:30pm Arrive, Mingle and Network
  • 7:00pm Start: Introductions to our panel
  • 7:15pm Panelist share words of wisdom from their field of expertise
  • 8:00pm Open Q & A (Anything too in depth will be deferred to a direct consultation)
