Center for Innovation & Technology

November 13, 2019

On Nov. 13, Bixel Exchange hosted its L.A. Tech Founders x Talent Coworking Day at General Assembly DTLA. The event brought together startup founders, students and community partners to celebrate Bixel’s work growing an inclusive tech ecosystem in the region. The event kicked off with a 2019 highlights update from Bixel’s directors that focused on some of the new initiatives launched this year. Keynote speaker Corneil Montgomery, Head of Social Impact at Bank of the West, delved into his experiences as a black entrepreneur who is now in a position to give back to an underrepresented startup community. Breakout sessions exploring sustainability, edtech, female founders and e-commerce rounded out the day.

The event also featured Bixel’s inaugural Bixelite of the Year pitch off competition. Former California State Assemblymember Mike Gatto and a panel of judges heard from five startup companies, including We Think INC, NuLeep, Eleveight, MuvnDay and winner CreditStarter. SEE THE PHOTOS.
