What we're about

Hello and welcome to the group!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jPivhqkXTaw&feature=youtu.be

We meet monthly to showcase new technology from LA and around the world followed by networking. 5-7 presenters demo their technology and answer questions (5+5min).

The idea of these Pitch Demo Events is to promote new technologies to the tech-interested public, potential clients, employees, and investors. Our goal is to provide inspiration and networking opportunities to those who want to find their passion and pursue what they love. Marvel at the latest in cool technology! Watch some slide decks and ask questions!

In addition to the monthly pitch demo event we run weekly Open Coffee Club meetings, every Sunday, rain or shine, from 10:00 - 12:00. Watch our announcements for the latest location.

VIDEO CONFERENCE DETAILS: 10AM-11AM Introductions on Zoom. 11AM-12PM Informal Networking using Zoom breakout rooms or other channels.

A microphone will be required for us to hear you. If you choose computer audio please make sure yours is set up and working with Zoom — there is a test function within the app. • Having your own camera and having it on is required. • By default, you will be muted at the start. You can unmute yourself when it’s your turn to speak. Please mute yourself again afterward to avoid disruptions to the meeting. • Once we are done with the introductions we'll have some themed breakout rooms (tech, sales/marketing, finance, general) for networking, or you can contact other participants directly through LinkedIn/email/phone/Skype/FB/other channels. • IMPORTANT: If you'd like to connect with other participants after the session by using the messaging feature in Meetup make sure to change your Privacy Settings to allow being contacted by other SMNT members.
