We are grateful to Nixon Peabody for hosting First Pitch: Land, Sea + Air Wednesday in Los Angeles.
We also want to express our gratitude to Greg Autry, Maxx Bricklin, John Suh, Matt Gildner, and Erik Birkeneder for serving as judges. We want to thank NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab and the University of Southern California and all the other organizations that nominated their startups to present.
We enjoyed fantastic presentations from a great variety of emerging companies. We've heard terrific feedback from attendees about the innovation they saw. There will be additional reporting on this First Pitch event shortly, including our photo blog and several perspectives from attendees and speakers.
Coming next will be First Pitch: Digital Health + Wearables in November. We've opened up the nomination process for presenting companies.
Companies interested in presenting should send non-confidential summaries to our team at FirstPitch@californiatechnology.org.
