Twiistup 6 is under new ownership and returns with a fresh new format combining top-notch conference speakers and networking party mixers. The local startup showcase has been through five rounds already and has grown immensely influential alongside the L.A. tech community. Under the guidance of new media impresario Francisco Dao, this iteration promises to be even more spectacular than the last. With conference speakers including technology and entertainment luminaries Quincy Jones, Chamillionaire, Ian Rogers and Jason Calacanis, Twiistup 6 is something aspiring entrepreneurs and anyone with a passion for technology should attend. For those interested more in partying than panels, tickets for the networking portion and the conference are sold separately. We'll be at both! Alexia Tsotsis
