Hello friend -- 


Co-working with Bixel Startup LAunch
On Jan. 26, the Bixel Startup LAunch Program hosted its first co-working day of the year for its entrepreneurs at the L.A. Area Chamber. Our entrepreneurs had the opportunity to be productive, share knowledge and resources and learn more about what’s brewing in the L.A. startup scene. The Startup LAunch Program is now offering co-working days monthly as an added resource to its members.
