About the Buzz
SoCal Buzz is owned and operated by me, Jim Butz, a Founder at Resonnect a Business Consultancy in San Diego County. My focus for this blog is on what’s happening within the Southern California Business community. I cover topics on new companies, who’s pitching their ideas, funding, what local investors looking at, and current business issues that affect our area. For subjects that have a broader appeal than Southern California, I created the StartUp Coast website where I cover a wide array of startup company topics.
Being involved in various business initiatives provides me with a wealth of current issues and topics to talk about. These initiatives include:
- Associate Partner with California Capital Partners a Merchant Banking Platform with offices in Southern California, Silicon Valley, New York City, Toronto Canada, and London England, where I evaluate and track client initiatives and new business opportunities.
- Business Mentor at TriTech Small Business Development Center in Irvine California where I work with early stage, high tech founders and CEO’s.
- President of SoCal EED a newly formed, non-profit focused on developing entrepreneurial ecosystems across Southern California. The initial project is a Seed Acceleration Program focused on developing Wireless Health companies that will be operated in North County San Diego, CA.
