Event Recap: San Diego, August 2018

Poker was hosted this month at the lovely Hera Hub in Sorrento Valley with special guest Silvia Mah! I think we all walked away from last night wondering just how does Silvia do everything she does. San Diego and the world is so lucky to have individuals like her, from angel investing, proving her father wrong, volunteering abroad and instilling those values in her children, [...]

Event Recap: San Diego, July 2018

It’s the final table and it’s down to the final 3. “How many hands are left to go, is this my one?” you think to yourself. You decide to play, not a great hand but winnable, you don’t have many chips left, should I go all in this hand? The Flop leaves you with a pair (high card) so you bet, the chip leader decides [...]

Event Recap: San Diego, June 2018

This month we were back at the Vine! They moved to UTC and are located equally inconveniently for both North County and Downtown founders, however, it’s worth it. The Vine has a tremendous space for founders both for poker or to work out of! We were lucky to have one of the top accelerators in the country in attendance. We almost didn’t make it out [...]

Ladies for the Win! This month we were at 101 W Broadway, graciously hosted by GoShare.

It set the stage for a fun night! Male or Female [...]

  It was a great turn out at the Vine In UTC. Thank you to our guest speaker Eric Gasser for sharing your story, and sharing the story of Seed San Diego.

Event Recap: San Diego, February 2018

The February 2018 San Diego Startup Poker event was hosted at The Vine in UTC (Irvine Company Co-Working). It's a great new space in the middle of the city for young companies to start their empires. It was a good turnout for early in the year, as we saw some faces that rarely make an appearance. Emily Rotolo from Simple Forms took home gold (well [...]

Will Caldwell & Dizzle/SnapNHD hosted Startup Poker in January. They recently moved into a beautiful office in La Jolla with a great view of the Ocean and the San Diego sunset. There were some new faces to the game, with some really cool businesses being ran in San Diego, from a back-of-house e-commerce platform, to an app that connects you to people in town that have similar [...]

Congratulations [...]
