Over the last few years, we've had a front row seat for the rampant startup ecosystem boom at Silicon Beach. Each Los Angeles Tech Cocktail Mixer has been bigger than the previous, and for that reason, we are chomping at the bit for next week's event. On March 27th we're headed to Cross Campus in Santa Monica to showcase a fresh batch of local startups.
We'll have a dozen up-and-coming startups on hand showcasing their goods, but before the Mixer kicks off, we want to know what you think – who is Los Angeles's Hottest Showcasing Startup? Let us know your thoughts by answering the poll at the end of this post (ends at 6:00pm local time on the day of the event).
The winner will be announced live at the event and will receive a couple of minutes on stage to pitch their startup in front of all attendees. Don't miss out.
