Blockchain & Booze - Let's Drink & Talk Crypto

Remember when grocery shelves were stocked with toilet paper, we could touch our faces, and didn’t have to #StayHome and become digital introverts. Oh, the good old days…

To make the most out of this situation, we invite you to a fun and relaxed get together online this Tuesday at 5 PM PST for our inaugural Blockchain & Booze digital meetup.

In light of this interesting time in all of our lives, there still might be some light at the end of the tunnel as we remember that it was Rapunzel who met her husband while quarantining – so who knows what will happen Tuesday over drinks.

#blockchain #bitcoin #crypto

The team at Draper Goren Holm and Los Angeles Blockchain Summit invite you to a fun and relaxed get together online this Tuesday at 5 PM PST for our Blockchain & Booze digital meetup.

Technology Is Transforming Los Angeles into a Large-Tenant Market | GlobeSt

In the past, small offices dominated the majority of commercial leases in Los Angeles.

However, in the advent of LA’s booming tech scene, that is changing.

Large workspaces are suddenly in high demand, with tech companies leasing mixed-use spaces of 100,000 square feet or more.

This trend is only expected to continue, with office rentals increasing 11.1% from Q2 2017 to Q2 2019 alone.

Small office users have historically driven leasing activity in Los Angeles, but the booming tech market is changing that.
