ATEL Communications was pleased to be represented at the ribbon-cutting ceremony for EvoNexus, San Diego’s non-profit incubator for hi-tech start-up companies. It’s wonderful to have such a powerful presence right in our own back yard and to experience first-hand the opportunities arising in our business community.
During the celebration it was asked how many people in attendance were founders of a company. Impressively, over 90% of the attendees raised their hands! It was a powerful feeling to be among so many interesting and diverse people with such wonderful ideas and accomplishments.
Former basketball great Bill Walton was at the event. Like EvoNexus helps build new tech companies, Bill supports a business accelerator program that drives San Diego’s sports economy by offering mentoring and capital funding programs to area start-up’s and entrepreneurs.
The networking opportunities that the forum provided were superb. Referrals to business and contacts both new and established were abundant. ATEL was excited to facilitate the meeting of some of the incubator companies with local medical firms.
ATEL looks forward to continued involvement of EvoNexus and the fledgling companies it is assisting.
