Silicon Beach Fest – Advice for Entrepreneurs

Silicon Beach Fest 2013One of the things I love about living in Los Angeles is the access to so many creative, inspiring, passionate business-minded people in the LA Start-up Scene. Entrepreneurs were out in full force at last week’s Silicon Beach Fest,  in Santa Monica, California. Presented by Digital LA, this is the second annual Santa Monica event … plus, they had a Hollywood mini-version last fall.

Below are excellent tweeted advice from #sbf 2013 … pay close to the first and last tweets. They are my favorites.
