As serial entrepreneurs, not all of us are privileged to live in the mecca of startups known as Silicon Valley. While there are more and more areas prominent for startups such as Santa Monica, Chicago, NYC, or even New Orleans, it can often be hard to know what is going on elsewhere. Frank Gruber saw this as an opportunity to create an online news publication regarding tech and startups but also to host local events nationwide. For nearly 3 years, Frank worked on Tech Cocktail non stop to bring his idea to life while working a 9-5. After getting funding of $2.5 mil, Frank has grown Tech Cocktail in over 30 states offline but also has a viewership base of over 300,000 visitors a month.
