Hello Q4. Man that happened fast! As we fall forward, I would love to continue sharing people and resources I am meeting in real time. Recently I had the privilege of meeting two ecosystem leaders,  Carey Ransom  and  Brett Fulmer . BrokerBrett is a connector, interested in helping amplify and elevate the OC community, like many of us, and using  OCStartupHU B  to build awareness of what's going on locally. If you are on Twitter, they are a worthy follow. 

Carey has been building tech companies for 15+ years in OC. He is investing in companies, mentoring founders, and now has a podcast called  Accelerate OC , which is completely worth a listen to learn from other community leaders and entrepreneurs.

Thank you both for putting your time and energy into building a more cohesive and connected community. 

Onwards,
