LAVA kicks off the the summer by hosting it Annual Membership Meeting, conducts Director elections and will feature a special 30th Anniversary Celebration.
As a lead in to #LAVA30th we'll post some milestones and highlights that made the Los Angeles Venture Association a vibrant and persistent part of the area's business community. Reg Gibson, the 1st President of LAVA, noted the humble origins of the group and referred to them as: ".. several hardy souls who wanted to create a space to convene those who wanted to do venturing. Not to study it or hear about it, but to do it." And LAVA has been doing it ever since.
The mission of the group was simple - "The specific purpose of this corporation is to educate people in the knowledge necessary to the establishment and growth of business ventures." And over the years it has been true to that core purpose but has also become an active advocate and unapologetic promoter of entrepreneurs, service professionals, investors and community leaders through events, conferences, workshops and seminars.
July 15th at the Skirball Center we celebrate and remember the history, the progress and the people that have made the Association what it is today. And we look forward to the next decade which will surely be better than the last.
Please join us!
