About Speaker:
Neal Bloom is a serial entrepreneur with operating experience in aerospace, edtech, talent tech, and marketplaces. He is currently CEO of Rising Tide Partners and Managing Director of Interlock Capital. Through his grassroots effort in multiple organizations, Neal Bloom has helped build an entrepreneur-focused community that helps entrepreneurs and companies grow and succeed in San Diego and throughout Southern California.

Bloom helped build nonprofit Startup San Diego and has helped grow San Diego Startup Week, which over the last eight years, has helped inspire thousands of local San Diegans in building confidence in taking the leap to become an entrepreneur. He is an investor through Interlock Capital and serves as a mentor to countless young entrepreneurs and is actively engaged in growing and promoting San Diego's thriving tech ecosystem. Bloom is dedicated to the success of the region and because of his tireless tech evangelism, some people have even given him the nickname, "Mr. San Diego."

Bloom also co-founded San Diego software company Portfolium (acquired in 2019) to help new college grads promote themselves; launched Hired.com to attract tech talent to the tech ecosystems; and also created a venture capital podcast (Tacos & Tech), and a newsletter and tech blog (Fresh Brewed Tech) to continue to bring venture capital and businesses to San Diego, elevating the community as a top 10 tech and startup hub.

From his success in helping to build the San Diego tech ecosystem, Bloom has also been helping other startup communities around the world adopt aspects of the ecosystem ‘playbook ‘- the elements of how to grow a startup community via capital, talent, mentorship, etc.

Fun fact: Previously an aerospace engineer, Bloom helped launch over 80 astronauts during the Space Shuttle program.
