Thursday, Dec 7th proved to be a very exciting day. Klinche, (in conjunction with BRIIA), was chosen to be featured on the front cover of the East Bay Book of Lists. Michael Schmahl, Klinche CEO, and two other BRIIA startup accelerator graduates shared a full-cover photo…What a great shot!
All five BRIIA graduates also shared a full inside page congratulating them on being the first set of startup entrepreneurs graduating from BRIIA. “Passionate entrepreneurs drive innovation. It is incredibly exciting to see them develop simple ideas into early stage companies ready to take flight. All of the five companies that just completed the BRIIA program have the potential to positively transform how we work and have huge opportunities in front of them. We are honored to count them as participants in the Tri-Valley entrepreneurial ecosystem!” Les Schmidt, BRIIA Founder & Executive Director.
EBBL Celebration Event
Thank you to PG&E and Bishop Ranch for sponsoring a fun evening with good food, and even better networking opportunities. The event included brief sponsor introductions by Mary Huss, Publisher of SFBT, and Master of Ceremonies, and two-minute presentations from all BRIIA graduates. These presentations highlighted the innovative products being developed by the East Bay BRIIA graduates. These presentations, and an evening of networking, proved to be a valuable opportunity with many connections made and interest generated.
