Andy Wilson is currently the Executive Director of the Alliance for Southern California Innovation, a group formed to pull together the talent and ideas in all of SoCal to help more innovators to emerge and succeed in bringing their breakthroughs to the world. We talked a lot about the mission and activities of the Alliance on the show.
Andy has also been an executive in a number of venture-backed, high-growth companies, such as Yahoo!, as well as an investor, advisor and startup community builder. He was co-founder of Innovate Pasadena years ago, and he’s currently a city council member in Pasadena.
He cares deeply about this region of the country, and helping, connecting, inspiring and encouraging others to participate and support each other. His leadership and friendship are things I greatly appreciate, and you'll see from the conversation that we can talk for hours about our excitement for all that's happening here.
