Presented By

Welcome back.

Once again, the Lloyd Greif Center for Entrepreneurial Studies is bringing the LA entrepreneurial scene back together to showcase 20 of the best startups from the top universities in Southern California.  This is a resource gathering event and is meant to attract early-stage investors, mentors/advisors, and human capital. The ventures will be ecumenical in nature, i.e. representing all industries in our ecosystem.

We welcome everyone to attend, get involved, make meaningful connections, and network. This will be a virtual summit and want everyone to be able to witness the future of Californian innovation.
