There are currently more than 21,000 alumni living in Los Angeles, where finance and business professionals run the town. From Burbank’s entertainment studios, to Century City’s powerful law and finance firms, there are some incredibly talented, ambitious and altruistic Tritons who are making waves in the greater Los Angeles region.

Whether you’re at the start of your career or a seasoned professional, we invite all Los Angeles Tritons to attend the inaugural Triton Connect at Tiato in Santa Monica to hear from a panel of distinguished and influential Triton professionals, plus dozens of successful alumni from top regional companies and firms, invited to share how their network played a crucial role in their professional success.

The evening’s networking reception includes light hors d'oeuvres and refreshments.
