  • SoCal Tech Association Uses Pivotshare to Sell Videos Online

    Technology investment in Orange County, California is growing at a tremendous rate, so much so that the area is threatening to pull the tech spotlight south from Silicon Valley. Part of this exciting development in innovation is due to the efforts of an OC organization called OCTANe. The mission of OCTANe is to connect innovators and entrepreneurs with the crucial relationships and resources they need in order to develop their business. Created in September of 2002 by co-founders Tom Moebus, former vice-chancellor of University of California, Irvine and Dwight Decker, former CEO and chairman of Conexant Systems, the organization has made a lasting impact on the economic development of the entire Orange County area. Over the course of their history, OCTANe has helped companies raise over $217 million in funding and equity exits. In 2012 alone, $77 million dollars was raised for a variety of new businesses through their LaunchPad program, the group’s platform for assisting startups in the technology, biomedical and cleantech industries. Our company, Pivotshare, was among them.
