With QuickPitch upon us, we now have both the finalists and judges announced. It’s going to be an exciting night where ten companies will pitches and be judged to win $75,000 in cash prizes. We’ll be interviewing everyone back stage for an upcoming episode of the Tacos and Tech Podcast (you can listen to Part 1 & Part 2 from last year). Hope you’ll join in person and on social media on Oct. 29, using the hashtag #QuickPitchSD.
I also got to recently step on the other side of the microphone and be interviewed by the Enterprise Podcast Network. During the podcast, I walk through why we started Fresh Brewed Tech and about the business we have been able to build around promoting San Diego’s vibrant and storied ecosystem. Give it a listen and shoot me your feedback.
Lastly, Startup San Diego is honored to host a resident entrepreneur from Malaysia for the next month. SA (or Soon-Aik) Chiew is from Startup Malakaand is in town through November 18. He wants to compare notes about ecosystem building, smart cities, and help connect you to Southeast Asia. He has a passion for travel tech, so Adam Harris , let’s get the three of us together and share notes there as well. If you want to meet with SA, shoot him a note at SA@startupsd.org or find him on the San Diego Startup Slack.
