Summer is almost over?! It feels like it with August coming to a quick end. But there's a lot going on, especially with some of our big name OC brands. Late stage fintech startup  Acorns  is raising more celebrity money,  Amazon  is launching its fleet of delivery robots, and  Surfline  made a n  Apple watch app! (stoked!).

But there are some other brands that deserve some major credit, like  Tech Coast Angels  having an amazing year of growth and  OCTANe  raising some serious capital for the local biotech/medtech startup community. Also Irvine & SD-based  EvoNexus  is opening a Silicon Valley campus, further linking our startups to the Bay Area with a fintech incubator in San Mateo. And if you happen to  be  going to this week's  Water Solutions  conference, come find me to say hi. Ping me on  Twitter  ;)
