In short term, attracting more
large funds to SoCal difficult
• Initially best to better
engage NorCal firms in SoCal
deals
• Encourage local presence of
larger NorCal Funds
• Build-out SoCal native fund

The opportunity
The SoCal region has the right conditions to be the next great tech hub
• #1 for tech PhDs and #2 for engineer grads
• Largest concentration of research universities (20)
• World-class IP (480+ patents in 2015), 80+ Nobel Prize winners
• Third most startups (3,175) and growing as fast as Silicon Valley (“SV”)
• SoCal leads in ethnic and professional diversity
Timing could not be better; Silicon Valley is saturated
• 2x more expensive to launch a startup in SV than 5 years ago
• Titans (FB, Google, Apple) consuming NorCal talent pool and resources
20
The Mission
To create the best conditions for more
blockbuster innovation companies in SoCal
21
Long term goals
22
1 Unify key SoCal and NorCal stakeholders: Solidify & Activate the Alliance
2 Educate influencers & rebrand region as leading hub: “Beyond Hollywood”
3 Create more great SoCal tech startups that break through series A barrier & beyond!

We believe that engaging diverse people is critical to
meeting industry demand for talent and that the
greatest technological and scientific challenges
facing society are best addressed when diverse
groups of individuals—with unique perspectives and

How Southern California Could Be the Next Great Tech Ecosystem
https://www.bcg.com/publications/2018/stars-aligning-southern-california-next-
great-tech-ecoysystem.aspx
The Alliance for Southern California Innovation (the
“Alliance”), formed in 2017 by serial entrepreneur and
public servant Steve Poizner, has successfully brought
together the heft of Southern California’s top research
institutions, local business leaders, and world-class advisors
to focus on bridging critical gaps in the SoCal ecosystem.
The goal of the Alliance is to nurture and accelerate the
growth of Southern California’s technology and life sciences
innovation ecosystem.
