Video: 2014 South Bay Business Mavericks

Oh what a night!  Last week’s South Bay Business Mavericks Gala & Grant Awards was incredible.  Here’s a recap of our evening of fun and celebration…

Such a great panel of South Bay business owners including Michael Zislis, Owner, Shade Hotel, Rock’n Fish, Rock & Brews, The Strand House; Russ Lesser, President, Body Glove, LLC; Kirk Rossberg, Founder, Torrance Bakery; Heidi Maerker, CEO, President, Herald Publications, Inc.;Sam Kartounian, Owner, Tic Time & Redondo Beach Watch Company.  They shared the big ideas that inspired them to launch and thrive in their business and make (or break) the rules in their industry.


It was an AMAZING night filled with inspiration, honesty, humor and straightforward insight into what it takes to be a business maverick.

The evening concluded with a celebration of ShopLocal’s three Small Indie Business Grant Award winners that night including John Post Gallery, CMS Water Works, and Mixagogo, Inc.
