The Digital Media Center in Santa Ana hosted the Youth Entrepreneur Forum last Wednesday, March 14, 2012. DishClips was proud to be a sponsors for this event. Dozens of students from Orange County colleges were invited to listen to a panel discussion moderated by SBA’s Regional Administrator, Elizabeth Echols. The panel included:
- Marciela Sandoval: RSCCD Youth Entrepreneurship Program
- Naren Sthiya: Spawnd
- Ash Kumra: DreamItAlive.com
- Chris Basirico: American Business Bank
- Steve Sjostrom: Tech Shark Investors
This forum provided an amazing opportunity for young entrepreneurial minds to network with a number of successful entrepreneurs, investors, and have their questions answered. It was an inspiring morning filled with sharing of knowledge, optimism around the current startup space, and practical advice on how to take an idea through the appropriate steps and realize the dream of entrepreneurship.
We wish to thank Mr. Gustavo Chamorro, Director of the Digital Media Center, and his entire staff for the experience. DishClips looks forward to continuing our support for similar events in the future.
