What we're about

Entrepreneurship is hard. OC Tech Happy Hour is not. It's the best place for investors, entrepreneurs, engineers, the technologically inclined and the creatively inspired. Over the past 3 years we've imagined a future where we can all get together, enjoy craft beer / music / networking and enjoy talks from $Billion Company CEOs, Bootstrapped Founders, & Global Technology Leaders.

With a network now over 7,200 members strong, OC Tech Happy Hour is the fun place to embrace the startup culture, make new friends, find investors, invest in companies, learn about cutting edge technology and generally be a good human being.

We have both social and more formal tech events and everything in between. There's something for everyone whether you're just getting started or are a seasoned serial tech entrepreneur.

Our startups have raised 10s of millions of dollars, our speakers have come from virtually every industry including Virtual Reality, Blockchain (Bitcoin), Nutrition, Information Technology, SaaS, and even Wine Making!
