About Innovate SoCal
Innovate SoCal was conceived by InSoCal, a collaborative alliance of four unifying organizations across Southern California that includes Connect, Octane, LAVA (Los Angeles Venture Association) and the Alliance for SoCal Innovation.
The groups individually have unmatched networks of startup founders, companies, incubators, accelerators, investors and research institutions. By coordinating efforts and combining their networks, the InSoCal organizations are able to bring key stakeholders together throughout the Southern California ecosystem thus driving the region to become a unified hub of innovation. Reducing fragmentation across the region leads to a stronger ecosystem that better supports existing companies and those considering expanding their operations into the area.
