The Los Angeles/Orange County community is a large LebNet Regional Community, consisting of over 80 Lebanese tech professional members, with the potential of becoming one of the largest among its peers, with members residing in the Greater Los Angeles and Orange County areas, and their respective suburbs.

The LA/OC community is a constantly growing vibrant technology hub with a large presence of startups, in what is commonly know as 'Silicon Beach' in West LA, and 'Tech Alley' in OC.  Companies such as CrowdStrike, Linksys, Cylance, Blizzard Entertainment, and Alteryx, to name a few, call the LA/OC community home.  The area also includes many Tech and Engineering focused Academic Institutions.  

The LA/OC steering committee hosts events, webinars and programs throughout the year to keep the community connected, strengthen future collaborations and give back to Lebanon.

With so many potential tech talents, we are always looking to grow our membership, and if you are interested in being part of our community, send us an email at [email protected]
