"I love being involved with the SoCal Venture Pipeline. At its core, the SoCal Venture Pipeline helps the Southern California startup community of entrepreneurs gain exposure to the right potential partnerships and investment groups. From the VC perspective, it also exposes us to companies that we might not otherwise have a chance to connect with. We are so fortunate to have such a wonderful initiative like the SoCal Venture Pipeline here in our backyard!”

J.C. Ruffalo, Venture Partner at Cove Fund

“Obviously a lot of care and planning went into this event and it showed. I also found it useful to break out of my more localized bubble and meet others within the SoCal innovation space who are committed to enhancing opportunities that will support the success of our larger region. Great topics and facilitators. A lot of what was discussed can be immediately applied and developing these relationships can have untold benefits in the months and years to come."
