And just like that, it’s Q4. It feels like the last three months were a blur. And it’s been a busy last few months overall for capital raised and acquisitions in San Diego, as you’ll see in our Q3 Review . While capital raised is by no means the only breaking news for an ecosystem, it certainly gets the headlines. Something worth looking at is how capital and local deals are tracked in the LA tech ecosystem , and various trends related to that, like tracking how much local capital and deal leading is going into LA companies. This will be worth looking at in San Diego and we’ll add it to future quarterly reviews .

Speaking of an active ecosystem, I am often (and by often I mean daily) asked how to get digitally connected to San Diego, whether people live here yet or not. I want to share some digital communities to help you jump start your SD network. Step one: you’re already doing it by reading Fresh Brewed Tech ! If you are an entrepreneur or interested in creating a startup, check out the San Diego Startups Slack group and these two Facebook groups. When you join, be sure to introduce yourself. If you are a tech employee of any size company, SD Tech Hub is a great place to start finding your potential community. There’s plenty of events, resources, and organizations, but these Slack groups are a great way to get started by connecting to others. Happy October, all, and see you at QuickPitchSD later this month.

Cheers!
