When I first moved to Los Angeles about 7 years ago, I missed the startup culture I left in the bay area. The LA startup scene was pretty small at the time. There were a few intimate meetup groups where people quickly got to know each other. That’s how I met Jose daVeiga. It was a Saturday afternoon while I was on the way to the beach, stopping into a meetup event to eat some pizza and drink some beer. My friend came over to me and told me I should meet a guy she just met as we had a lot in common. Jose has a love for science and startups. He’s worked on a number of startups and currently funded by Technicolor Ventures to build Into, a company that creates a social graph of people’s interest in products.
