Join us at CraveLab for a night of wine, cheese, snacks and of course pitching (for practice). We're aiming to bring together a small group of start-ups, techies, entrepreneurs and even hopeful entrepreneurs who live in downtown LA. This is a chance to meet and greet as well as an opportunity to practice pitching to a group. Don't think we'll let you go into an investor room without practicing and refining your pitch at least 20 times! We're hosting the event at a coworking space that recently opened called CraveLab in DTLA. We'll also be hosting future events on subjects including "Business Model Generation Pitch," "Co-founder Evaluation," and "Feasibility Analysis."
If you're planning on having a drink or two, please bring $5 to help cover costs (there'll be beer too).
Our schedule will be to meet and greet for about an hour from 5:30PM - 6:30PM, and loosen up with some drinks while we're at it. Then, starting at 6:30PM we'll allow people the opportunity to pitch their ideas for 3 minutes each. We will then open up the discussion to everyone in the group to give feedback!
Please sign up in the comment section of this event if you would like to throw out a pitch. It'll be on a first come first serve basis limited to the first 10 people. If you're not able to make this event, no worries we'll have more of these in the future!

CraveLab is accessible by Metro and Bus. We are only a few short blocks away from the Civic Center Metro Station. The station is located on Hill Street between 1st and Temple Streets in the Civic Center area of Downtown Los Angeles. It is served by the Red Line and Purple Line trains. For those taking the bus, we are on DASH Downtown Route A. Stop at Figueroa & 2nd Street (Stop # 6185).
We are a few entrepreneurs and designers who expanded our current office into a collaborative space/office to provide a working space for others like us, including start-ups and organizations.
We aim to have an active community who thrive to network with others like ourselves and sometimes find the need to collaborate, share with, and support one another in this new age of the "mobile office." Our collaborative spaces and micro-offices are most ideal for individuals or teams who feel confined or distracted working from their homes and simply need a desk away from home without any long-term lease commitments and office management headaches or fees.
We aim to be a professional but energetic and fun environment where you can cost-effectively hold a small meeting or hash-out a group work session.
