It might seem hard to believe, but our recent “Meet the Xconomists” reception marked the fourth anniversary of Xconomy’s arrival in San Diego. As Qualcomm founder Irwin Jacobs put it in an email, “It doesn’t seem that long, are you sure you are counting correctly?”
The reception is our way of saying “Thanks” to the innovators, entrepreneurs, CEOs, investors, and others who have helped Xconomy become the most authoritative source of news and insight about San Diego’s startup community.
We established this to serve as Xconomy’s signature networking opportunity in San Diego, with no presentations or speeches. A big thanks to everyone who was part of it, especially Alexandria Real Estate Equities for hosting the reception at their new Nautilus Campus on Torrey Pines Mesa. We’re also grateful to our event sponsors: Hughes Marino; Kilpatrick Townsend; Square 1 Bank; and others who have helped to support Xconomy as an innovative online media startup.
