A lot to be thankful for after a whirlwind year. Mostly, it’s you — leaders, connectors, builders, givers. I’m thankful for your attention, passion, and willingness to make our community better. 

We started FreshBrewedTech (FBT) to shout from the rooftop that San Diego is a tech destination worth knowing and great people are building great tech. Step one is about informing you and step two is about you sharing with your network. If you look at all of the social posts every time there’s a new fundraiser, that’s us all sharing in the success. 

So take the next week to be proud of where we’ve come.

And then next week, we get back to work because we’re not done. Far from it. 

We ride this wave to the next heights, which includes continuing to build great companies and taking our learnings to help new companies start, and recycle our time, talents, and capital.

Thanks for being a part of this epic ride!

Join us every Friday for our Fast Five SD Tech Stories on Clubhouse and recent recordings here:

Tech undoubtedly changed almost every aspect of the way businesses operate throughout the last 18 months. When the pandemic first hit, there was a lot of talk about how businesses should adopt technology to transition away from traditional settings. Now that nearly two years have gone by, let’s examine what technological strategies small businesses are utilizing to keep up the momentum.

Jasmine LeFlore is co-founder of Greater Than Tech, a local nonprofit organization designed to create the next tech business leaders by teaching girls of color the intersectionality of engineering and business. As someone who always dreamed of being an aerospace engineer, Jasmine said she wanted to help girls define their own path to engineering.
