We had an awesome time meeting everyone at the NextSeed Los Angeles launch event at IgnitedStudios last week! Los Angeles investors and business owners gathered at the newly renovated event space on Hollywood Blvd. (this prime location was empty for 30 years!) to experience NextSeed in action – bringing together the LA community to learn about new projects and support each other’s endeavors.
NextSeed issuers based in Los Angeles were able to join us in this celebration. IgnitedStudios had launched a campaign earlier that day and shared with us their vision for a new entertainment hub, bringing IgnitedStudios’ on-demand post-production facilities and event space in conjunction with their existing sister company, IgnitedSpaces, a popular co-working space located at the penthouse level. Hoke Poke, a popular fast-casual poke restaurant, who is expanding into North Hollywood with their Japanese-influenced poke concept, had also just launched their NextSeed campaign that day.
Our guests enjoyed delicious samples from local businesses like Hoke Poke, Open Source Organics and Cafe Dulce, and up-and-comers like Kobunga Grill and Chef Theresa Montano, who is opening a new restaurant, Otono. Thanks go to our sponsors from Polsinelli, and Jack Daniels for providing a virtual reality experience along with a whiskey tasting.
We’re excited to be expanding in Los Angeles and connecting people and businesses around the country!
