SVP Founder Alumni Reception
May 9 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
The Alliance is hosting an Alumni Reception for the SoCal companies accepted into the SoCal Venture Pipeline (SVP). This invite-only event will celebrate the entrepreneurial journey of the SVP Alumni companies with food, drinks, and good company with fellow founders in a fun relaxed atmosphere.
The SVP Alumni will also hear from a panel of successful founders and a VC who can share their advice on what founders should prioritize at this stage of their journey. The panel discussion will include Chris Webb, Founder and CEO of take out app Chow Now; John Harris, Cofounder and CEO of EV company Harbinger Motors; and Jennifer Richard, Investor at Bonfire Ventures.
The Alumni Reception is an opportunity to meet other founders in the program, learn from founders who have raised successfully, and connect with ecosystem partners. The event is generously underwritten with support by PacWest and UBS
