Cornell Club of Los Angeles – Cornell in Tech: Starting a Startup
April 6, 2017 @ 7:00 pm
Santa Monica, CA
Location: Santa Monica, CA
Join us for a panel discussion with three Cornell alumni who have started technology companies in Los Angeles and hear what it took to go from idea to reality.
Our panelists are Brian Hartnack (Campus Explorer; $8.9M in funding), Ryan Hudson (Honey; $5.1M in funding), and Claire Cannon (Flexa and Statisfied). They’ll talk about what worked, what didn’t, and lessons they’ve learned along the way. Lizzie Francis, former Gilt Groupe CMO and co-founder of VC firm Brilliant Ventures, will be moderating. The panel will be followed by a Q&A session and networking.
This is the first of an ongoing series of events to deepen connections between members of the Cornell tech community in Los Angeles and will be a great opportunity to meet like-minded alumni.
Refreshments will be provided.
