With the Everything Marketplaces community presence growing in cities like Los Angeles, we've started hosting local meetups to help bring together community members.
We recently hosted a Marketplace Chat & Meetup on 6/8 in Los Angeles, which was part of LA Tech Week. We had a really great turnout with over 125+ marketplace founders, teams, & leaders from the community attending. We were also joined by special guests Andrew Chen and Olivia Moore from a16z, along with Aziz Alghunaim from Nash for a moderated chat on marketplaces from both the founder and investor point of view. We followed this up with a casual meetup, where members had the chance to meet. We shared a recap post with 50+ pictures in the community that you can see here. We wanted to share more about it on our blog to help highlight some of our community members in Los Angeles.
Here's a few pictures from the meetup:
