StartUp LA Hits Anderson!

Time is running out to keep LAist funded.
It's the FINAL DAY of our June Member Drive and we are behind on our goal to keep local news strong for the coming months. Your support today keeps our reporters ready to meet the needs of our city. Plus, your gift's impact will be twice as strong because it will be matched dollar for dollar!

I'm really looking forward to StartUp LA which is kicking off today! It's a conference and an un-conference together. The idea came from a BarCamp LA session (which by the way is next weekend) and it's to bring together start ups, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and let us all mix and mingle.
