Los Angeles Mayor’s Cup

The inaugural Los Angeles Mayor’s Cup was put on by Mayor Eric Garcetti and created as a way to encourage new companies to solve problems related to Los Angeles’ civic ecosystem. Chris participated as a judge in the preliminary rounds and hosted the final event alongside judges like Troy Carter, ShoeDazzle’s Brian Lee, and Jennifer W. Lopez from the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space. The finals were held at Cross Campus’ Downtown Los Angeles Campus, with Small Business Strong (a virtual, traveling resource center for small businesses), taking home the prize.
