California Tech 100

California Tech 100

Last week, I was in Irvine for the inaugural California Tech 100 event to honor entrepreneurship in California’s tech sector.

There were two parts to the event. First was a standard Golden Capital event where early stage companies made their pitch to angel investors and VCs. One company that really stood out was Freepath, based ironically enough just down the road from me in Folsom. The company is led by John Stone, one of the founders of PowerSchool, which I worked closely with during my time at Apple. Freepath is a spin out from Grassroots Software, that is focusing on creating demand for the product that makes it easier to integrate multiple varieties of digital media into a PowerPoint presentation on the fly.

The second part of the event was the actual awarding of the inaugural California Innovation Awards. There’s a link the award winners, here.
