Technology Panel At Santa Monica Civic Auditorium On November 10:

Local technology entrepreneurs are invited to an evening of discussion highlighted by a panel of start-up founders.

upStart.LA, the Santa Monica based startup accelerator, will host the evening called “Accelerators & Incubators: An Entrepreneur’s Point of View” on Thursday, Nov. 10 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium (SMCA).

The event will feature a panel of some of SoCal’s brightest entrepreneurs who have received funding from TechStars, Y Combinator, 500 Startups, and Idealab, speaking to an expected 300 attendees and will be moderated by upStart. LA’s Co-Founder, Dan Dato.

“During the past decade, we’ve seen an entrepreneurial boom in the United States, driven in part by economic conditions that have forced people to create a job rather than find a job,” says Dato. “In response to this trend, and especially during the past few years as angel investors and venture capitalists have shifted their focus to larger investments in more developed companies, a new breed of investor has emerged around the world to fill the gap and help start-up tech companies succeed.”

The goal with the ‘Accelerators & Incubators’ event is to spread first-hand experiences to the SoCal entrepreneurial community about accelerators and incubators as these entities are becoming the new ‘university’ for entrepreneurial America.

The panelists will share their experiences and insights about these programs and investors and offer a wide-range of information to the attendees before ending with a Q & A.

The SMCA is located at 1855 Main Street, Santa Monica.

Tickets are $10 and available at http://upstartla-panel.eventbrite.com.
