Accessing LA, the City of Los Angeles’ flagship networking series, is a collaboration of Mayor Eric Garcetti’s Office of Economic Development, various Council offices, the Office of Procurement and the Department of Public Works.
Each of the three events in this series focuses on a particular industry that brings together several City departments, public agencies, and contractors (both primes and subcontractors). BuildWith focuses on the construction industry. The TeamWith event places emphasis on professional/personal services. RiseWith promotes business/contracting development, especially in the San Fernando Valley.
Accessing LA's aim is to provide opportunities for building meaningful relationships, gaining valuable perspectives and accessing an abundance of resources to promote economic development and contracting with the City of Los Angeles. From start up businesses to seasoned subcontractors, the Accessing LA events create an experience and a dynamic tight-knit community for those who want to do business with the City and other public agencies.
