These are weekly coffee meet-ups to increase and enhance the vibrancy of the great Pasadena tech and start-up community. We have a cross section of interested innovators (investors, entrepreneurs, programmers, CTO’s, VC’s, angels, etc) who are eager to more actively engage with other members of our local community. These sessions occur every Friday from 8:20am to 9:40am and are informal. We typically have a short structured presentation on a specific topic or do a deeper dive on a local company. All interested parties are welcome to attend.
