Happy September! Startup San Diego recently announced the hiring of a new Executive Director, and within a few weeks, we have over 500 applications in. Thank you all for helping to get the word out. Applications are still open while we have started initial interviews, so please submit if interested. 

If you’ve been following along with our SD tech mafia series , you’ll notice we are deep in telling the Active.com story from the late 90s to now. This next episode with Kristin Carroll and Rescue Agency is another great installment and shows the diversity but also the depth of the San Diego ecosystem. Other examples of the region’s vibrant tech diversity is the sports tech cluster in Carlsbad and a spotlight on a real estate tech company Greendoor . Have a read on our blog and send us more tips and topic ideas to uncover.

Speaking of our happening ecosystem, it’s a busy month with some great events coming up that are absolutely worthwhile of your attention: 

See you out here!

Cheers!
