Thank you everyone who made the CA Tech Fest in L.A. extraordinary! We felt honored to host such a diverse and passionate gathering. On April 3rd and 4th, over 75 people with unique voices and goals came together in downtown L.A. to learn, share, and connect.

So when I saw the circle of chairs awaiting us at the CA Tech Fest venue, I couldn't help but smile.
