    Thanks, Bruce, for covering this – very exciting times and great momentum in San Diego. I wholeheartedly agree with Case’s comment that relationships will provide the access to capital. Much of what StartupSanDiego is doing by running their bi-weekly mentorship programs is to create the environment in which relatioships happen. These lead to support through experience sharing for the entrepreneur, and in many cases to funding through networking to investors with a common interest.

    One area SD could focus on is trying to increase our links to the Bay Area. I few entreprenerus I’ve spoken to have worked the network in San Diego, gaining their seed round, but need help to get to the $5mm VC round. The SWARM movement (on which you have previously written) is trying to address this issue.
    Positive moves.
