4 Upcoming Startup Financing Events in LA


If you don’t know already, I have the honor of curating the events calendar for Hub Los Angeles. If you haven’t checked it out yet, I find some of the best events in LA for entrepreneurs.

Los Angeles Ideation Bootcamp II w/ Founder Institute – Tomorrow (Santa Monica)

The Founder Institute is a unique accelerator program for entrepreneurs. Unlike other programs, you don’t need an idea to get accepted, the test to get in is a logic and personality test. This event’s not necessarily about funding, and is geared more toward new entrepreneurs as opposed to those currently raising money.

Fundraising & the Process of Raising Money – w/ Amplify – This Wednesday (Venice)

Amplify is the awesome incubator in Venice, and this is the first event they’re hosting at their new office. When I put together a resource of 11 accelerators/incubators in LA, these guys stood out because of their (1) cool website, (2) mentor’s relationships w the entertainment industry, and (3) their focus on building community.

The Insider’s Guide: Fundraising for Your Startup in LA w/ Ocean Road Partners – April 5 (Santa Monica)

This is a 2.5 hr event that costs $95, because it’s packed with all the information you should be raising if you’re looking to raise money. I’ll probably attend on behalf of StartupHen, take notes, and share it with you.

The 7th Annual Fast Pitch Competition w/ Tech Coast Angels – April 24 (UCLA)

Submission deadlines are March 31st. Tech Coast Angels is the angel group for SoCal tech.
