The LA Tech Summit takes place on Thursday December 11, 2014 at the JW Marritt at LA Live in Downtown Los Angeles. While most of the tech related conferences are in Silicon Beach (Venice & Santa Monica), it’s extended it’s reach into Downtown and Hollywood. Soon enough, Silicon Beach may be referred to in the same way that the Silicon Valley name extends to the San Francisco Bay Area to many. Use code “100off” to receive $100 off general admission. Cool!
Mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti along with Dana Settle from Greycroft Partners and Adam Miller from Cornerstone on Demand are some of the key speakers at the event.. Also notable are Richard Wolpert from Amplify, Mark Suster from Upfront Ventures and Marl Painter from TrueCar. The overwhelming majority of presenters at the conference are men at press time and only 2 other women are presenters.
Therese Tucker, CEO of Blackline and Tracy Dinunzio, CEO and Founder of Tradesy are the other women presenters at the tech conference. While, the conference is sure to have its value, there’s always room for improvement.. So, for next year, how about more diversity?
