Downtown LA Startups is a group dedicated to bringing downtown Los Angeles entrepreneurs, start-ups, and existing small business owners together to network and to support one another.  Having been someone who started my own business in an apartment in downtown, there is difficulty in finding support and networking opportunities for downtown LAers as we're usually transplanted here from elsewhere with the hopes and dreams of making it big in the big city. We aim to host events that benefit start-ups (with a primary focus on tech and ecommerce); from helping people properly register their business or incorporate, to learning how to promote and grow your business.  We also hope to get together all of our like-minded downtown individuals for co-founder networking, idea generation and critiquing, and other casual events.  Keep checking back for event updates!
