About the Forum

The mission of the LA CTO Forum is to foster the SoCal technology ecosystem. We believe that by helping our members to be more effective CTOs, we can have a positive impact on the ecosystem. The Forum is a vibrant, private, invite-only network of software CTOs who exchange ideas, share experiences, and help each other when needed. We conduct monthly meetings, quarterly roundtables, and discuss different business and technology topics.
