ConSol Partners’ Co-Founder & Executive VP, Marc Cohen, was a BritWeek panellist at Digital LA’s event entitled ‘Growing Your Start-up in LA and UK’.
The event focussed on UK-origin companies who are building a presence in Los Angeles as part of BritWeek – a series of activities which celebrates creativity and innovation between the US and UK. The event took place on Thursday April 30th in Santa Monica – just a few blocks from the ConSol Partners office.
Marc believes that the event gave the UK great exposure both in LA and the wider US: “It was great to be on the BritWeek panel which celebrated LA as a fantastic place for Brits to set up base.”
“Since becoming part of the LA start-up community we have been viewed as a facilitator of the expansion by providing expertise, money and of course people. We’ve invested in two local tech start-ups and have already relocated six staff members from the UK to the US. I was pleased to share our journey with the delegates for what was a great event”.
