And we’re back! Time has definitely flown by this summer and now fall is in full swing around here! The past month has been jam packed with events and this week we’re excited to share our latest event for BeGreat’s semi-annual meeting of the minds! The event is in celebration of creativity and innovation within Los Angeles’ ever-expanding start-up ecosystem, with a sole mission of connecting big ideas with those that can make them possible. This past event was held at the Pacific Design Center, a landmark space in West Hollywood with all proceeds benefiting Pencils of Promise, a non-profit charity that dedicates their efforts to helping build schools in countries of need. A spectacular night was enjoyed by hundreds of LA’s elite professionals and companies for a great cause.
Guests entered through the main entrance on Melrose where they made their way up to the third floor to be greeted by a red carpet escorting them towards the media wall. After having their photos taken, they were able to meet with the 22 showcasing portfolio companies and sponsors. After guests networked to their hearts content, they made their way to the outdoor patio which was decorated with sleek white furniture to fit the modern, clean lines of the venue’s edifice. Large floral arrangements by Tic-Tock Floral Couture were placed amongst the decor which was lit with the BeGreat’s signature blue and orange colors. Guests snacked on delectable finger foods such as spicy tuna tartare, smoked fish tacos and petite lamb chops by the famous Wolfgang Puck Catering. Desserts were provided by our go-to cupcake source, BYOCupcake, in which they spruced up the cupcakes to fit within the color scheme and were additionally adorned with small flags of the showcasing companies. DJ Sleeper opened up the night with his selection of classic crowd favorites and was followed by DJ Politik who closed out the event with an eclectic taste of music.
