On Thursday, January 19, SplashX LA will present local entrepreneurs, media, civic leaders and world-class investors representing more than $10M of capital under management at the cozy TechStyle Fashion Group HQ in El Segundo, CA

SplashX is a short and sweet 3-hour twilight tech talk and mixer, where valuable lessons and inspirations are shared by influential leaders in innovation. This first SplashX LA is focused on "Joy Ventures" – trendsetting companies with products and services that delight us. Splash Talks and Splash Chats are 20 minutes of pure, raw wisdom about fundraising, building, and scaling a startup, presented by visionary Founders and CEOs who have successfully raised $10M+ in funding. A 10-minute Q&A proceeds each Splash. This unique salon-style evening is an exciting opportunity to learn and mingle with entrepreneurs, inventors, and investors in an intimate environment.

With venture investment slowing down last year, what can we anticipate for the venture landscape in 2017? A select panel of VCs will be on hand to share their concerns and their hopes. Some reality-check questions to be discussed: Are VCs asking startups tougher questions? Have valuations been slashed in half? Aren't the best startups born in the down times?

The event will be a reality check and an enlightening discussion on innovation, as South Cal-based startups share their success stories on stage. 

Stay informed about your community, your competition and your resources!
