* Announcement from Mike Gammarino about Students4Startups *
There are a TON of great young startups in LA right now. It grows every month. We'll be hosting STARTUP MATCHMAKING NIGHT in early October. We have a handful of the brightest startups in the area coming out for some happy hour shenanigans, and more importantly some talent scouting.
The idea is pretty simple, each company rep at the happy hour will have a 'Hello' badge that says what kind of talent they're looking for, and all the people looking for a gig will have a different badge that shows their specialty.
The companies we have confirmed so far are:
