Geek Pitch: Startups Pitch to Engineers | South LA

Phase Two (map)
Free tickets available here.

So many pitch events are geared towards pitching to investors. This event was created so that different stage startups can pitch to engineers. One of the biggest hurdles in a startup is finding a CTO (Chief Technical Officer) and/or a developer team to build the product.
Misla- Made in South LA, Code District, and Bixel Exchange have teamed up to connect Startups with Developer talent. Misla is a pre-code academy with focus on training underrepresented minorities in the South Los Angeles area. 

Each startup will have 5 min to pitch their company to a room full of engineers. Startups will range from pre-funded, to seed round, to series A and beyond. Most will be looking for engineers interested in equity-only or equity+cash compensation. Some startups will be pitching to hire our culturally diverse engineers. Pitching Startups will be announced at a later date. The engineers attending will be diverse with skill levels ranging from student to Senior level programmer. They will have interest in joining pre-funded startups and beyond.
