32nd Annual EA Conference
Friday, March 10th, 2017
UCLA Anderson School of Management, Korn Convocation Hall
From Silicon Beach to the revitalized DTLA, Los Angeles has emerged as the new focus of the US startup scene. This year the 32nd annual EA Conference is looking beyond Anderson to highlight all the things that make Los Angeles the “Creative Capital of the World”.
Extending far beyond entertainment, the entrepreneurial spirit of the city’s residents has made LA home to the most unique economic ecosystem in the world. A blend of diversified industries and a wide breadth of talent is why Los Angeles has been the resilient home of entrepreneurship and innovation for the past century.
Over the past three decades, students, alumni and guests have come together to be inspired, pitch new ideas, and learn about the companies that will shape and change not only Los Angeles, but California and the world. This year, the EA will celebrate the recent success of our burgeoning startup ecosystem, and UCLA Anderson is proud to bring you:
