From our DiversifyLA panels to our monthly #ConnectLA happy hours, we strive to strengthen and further LA’s tech ecosystem. All of our events provide an environment where technology professionals can socialize, learn, and support one another. Our mission is to diversify entrepreneurship and ultimately make Los Angeles a connected economy.
ConnectLA is our series of monthly networking events held throughout Los Angeles. Started in September 2015, ConnectLA has since seen amazing support from the community. Our mission is to build relationships with our community and bring together startup CEOs, entrepreneurs, investors, engineers, and all of whom are seeking to build the tech scene here in Los Angeles. Numerous co-working spaces, which include Expert Dojo and WeWork, have partnered with us to host these events.

At Thunderbolt, we are committed to enforcing equality and inclusion in the workplace. We launched DiversifyLA to address the lack of racial and gender diversity in the tech industry. Our goal is to raise awareness on diversity issues and educate the community on how to take action and ultimately, change the industry.
The first #DiversifyLA was held in June where a panel of entrepreneurs shared knowledge and resources for overcoming challenges in the workplace. The community responded with tremendous support and acknowledgement. Diversity is the fuel for innovation and DiversifyLA aims to push the conversation forward so that the industry can truly thrive.
Thunderbolt presents one of the most exclusive business galas in Beverly Hills with its yearly Private Technology Summit, where the glamour of Rodeo Drive meets investment firms from around the world.
Our mission is to deliver a 360 degree service for your needs: from branding to physical-digital services and cross-platform narrative design. We also strive to connect investors with brilliant next-level thinkers, which is why we created our Private Technology Summit.
In our highly successful 2015 event, we introduced four of Thunderbolt’s Startups and four Sponsoring Startups to over 300 potential clients and investors, along with over 10 Panelists. The 2015 Private Technology Summit also featured a special guest speaker, the CSO of eHarmony, Galen Buckwalter PhD.
With further plans to expand our gala to other tech cities such as New York City and San Francisco, the Thunderbolt Private Technology Summit is one of the many ways Thunderbolt has made an effort to expand and celebrate our thriving industry.
