    I thought the building we used was great. Lots of chairs, good meeting. I am doing "Gap Analysis", to match up innovative products with funding people. I sincerely hope we can do some matchups with Startup LA. This is a good first try.

    I thought it was worthwhile to attend. I think future events will be even better as the word gets out.

    A great group of entrepreneurs, investors, incubators and accelerators were brought together to help inform future startups of all the resources and opportunities that are out there.

    Great first effort and great energy all round. Perhaps too many organizers/ panelists all at once, so it was hard to follow. Amazing how these entrepreneurs are determined toi change the business landscape. Good for them and us! Reason for 4 stars - started a little late and went on a little too long. More time should reserve for interacting and networking.

    Judges will just hold up point card votes. Winner gets some attention in press. There will be VCs and angels in audience. The whole event is only designed to bring attention to the Startup America Partnership launch of Startup California and Startup LA. These organizations help startups to get the most of the local ecosystems available to aide them. We will also educate audience on the benefits of the new JOBS ACT for all Startups.
