About this event

Unique to StartupGrind-Manhattan Beach, our 2024 series of events focuses on our seasoned local professionals here in the South Bay and hosts multiple new executives sharing their latest ventures:

Our event will start with a short roundtable of these  local executives sharing their latest launches: -Bridger Hart, Carson Hart, - Co-founders

Hoppn's patented color search technology makes it easy for shoppers to find products in the exact color they want to buy. As a design-focused technology company, Hoppn creates fun and intuitive user experiences for searching products by color.

As a teenager, Bridger used filmmaking as a vast canvas to express his creativity. His natural curiosity led him to explore every aspect of the process, from start to finish. With festival awards for directing, cinematography, visual effects, and writing, he earned national recognition as a two-time YoungArts recipient. His curiosity and love of solving problems led to finding inspiration in new industries, making a difference in the world of online shopping.

In 2013, Bridger made the cover of Southbay magazine for their "Top Teens to Watch" series. incubated by - Elijah Kim - Founder
