Silicon Beach LA hosts the 3rd Silicon Beach Expo & Hiring Blitz on Saturday, February 8th, 2014 from 9am–12pm at the University of Southern California’s Campus Center Ballroom in Los Angeles.
After successful events at LMU and UCLA, this third expo will be the largest to date with over 50 of the hottest Silicon Beach startups including Whisper, PaeDae, EdgeCast, Omaze, Combatant Gentlement, and more. Altogether the attending startups have raised over $250 million from investors including Ashton Kutcher, Scooter Braun, and more!
“Two of the largest impediments to the LA startup community are awareness and talent. The Silicon Beach Expo & Hiring Blitz tackles these problems head on by creating a massive collision of the relevant companies, investors, and applicants,” said Robert Lambert, Founder and CEO of Silicon Beach LA, Inc. “Put the right groups in a gorgeous venue, invite 5,000+ applicants and watch what happens.”
LA has been in the news frequently with well-known startups SnapChat, Beats Music and more, which is drawing in a multitude of new talent and interest.
"Los Angeles is one of the tech capitals of the world, with more than 2,200 start-ups, and graduates more engineers than the Bay Area," said Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. "I'm committed to preparing our next generation for the jobs of the future, and the Silicon Beach Expo & Hiring Blitz is a great way to connect qualified job seekers with one of our fastest-growing career sectors."
To maximize the success of the event, organizers have invited applicants from across LA as well as alumni from top-tier universities and design schools including UCLA, Pepperdine, CalTech, Harvey Mudd, Cal State Los Angeles, OTIS, Art Institute of Design LA, and more.
