I have gotten 2 big things from the SMNT monthly meetings.
The first is getting a pulse on the Los Angeles startup scene. By volunteering at many meetings, it gives me an overall sense of what is trending.
The second advantage is chatting with the audience before and after the talks. I have met numerous local entrepreneurs who are highly motivated and talented. Far better than scanning LinkedIn. The interpersonal bandwidth of the meetings is more valuable and fulfilling.
