Splash LA on Oct. 13 is shaping up to be an awesome event

We're still enjoying the summer. Many of you are probably still on vacation. But keep in mind, Splash LA 2016 is in a couple months. So make plans to be in Santa Monica at the Loews Hotel on the beach on October 13 for the 6th Annual Splash LA startup and investor festival.

We've always had great speakers, from Jessica Alba of The Honest Company and Michael Dubin, Founder & CEO of Dollar Shave Club, which was acquired earlier this year for $1 billion by Unilever. This year, our lineup continues to be impressive.

We are lucky to have Mark Cuban join us for a Fireside Chat, and as a celebrity judge for our startup competition. Yep. It's like we're bringing Shark Tank to Splash LA! Mark is, as many know, one of the hosts of Shark Tank, the popular startup pitch show on ABC. He's also the owner of the Dallas Mavericks, Landmark Theaters and Magnolia Pictures. He's also an author of a book, "How to Win at the Sport of Business." Mark founded back in the '90s. It went on to be sold to Yahoo for $5.7 billion in Yahoo shares.  

Summer Sale tickets are on now! Get tickets for roughly $100 and Demo tables for under $200.


Mark joins a roster of amazing founders and CEOs from Los Angeles, or whose companies have expanded to LA. Here are some of our speakers.
