Welcome to The Local Buzz, your inside scoop on San Diego’s tech scene. Keep up to date on our Fresh Brewed Tech website.
Hey friends, while March felt like a year, April felt like a week. I hope you are all doing OK. I attempted to go for a run with a mask on this weekend and it did not work out well. I did join a pretty fun virtual beer festival this past weekend where 1,500 San Diegans were shipped 10 local beers and watched recorded tasting notes from brewers and music performances. What are you doing that’s new lately?

With the switch to digital everything, it’s been fun to experiment with new ways to connect and network, including presenting at Startup SD/Mission Edge/SD Downtown Partnership’s Startup Series, where we talked through the entrepreneurial mindset and local resources. Watch the recording here . Part two is this Friday and word on the street is each workshop you attend gives you a bigger discount to the (soon-to-be-announced) postponed San Diego Startup Week. 

We also continue to experiment with our newsletter to inform as many as possible on what’s going on in San Diego. Let us know what you think of the content and layout. This week, we are excited to highlight SDSU startup Den written by Sandy Athniel. Give it a read!

Stay safe and healthy,
