On Wed, July 15, we all drove to Playa Vista for our July pitch/demo event #SMNT36 at CTRL Collective :
“The Collective is a shared working space in Silicon Beach that’s bringing together the best startups, entrepreneurs, hackers, makers, students, and creatives in Los Angeles”.
We were very excited to invite our members to this new location to showcase how much Silicon Beach has to offer. The venue boasts 24 private offices and about 300 co-working spaces.
This mansion style building of about 26,000 sq. ft, formerly an oil company abode, offers covered outdoor space and a garage to be converted into a makerspace and sound proof recording studio. The property (with 60 parking spaces on premises and private valet) is so big, that we had to create multiple signs with arrows so that our attendees didn’t get lost in its vast labyrinths.
