Hello friend --


Startup LAunch hosts inaugural Executive-In-Residence Demo Day
On Dec. 14, Bixel Exchange’s Startup LAunch program hosted a demo day for six startups belonging to their pilot Executive-In-Residence (EIR) program. Participating startups included, Eleveight, Lawgood, Lorals, Muvn and Pactriglo. Each startup pitched their companies in front of Bixel Exchange partners and members of the tech community, ending with a Q&A session with the audience. The demo day was the culmination of the pilot program, which brought together tech executives and L.A. startups at all stages for hands-on, customized mentoring over the past 10 weeks. Bixel Exchange is funded in part through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration. See the photos.
