OpenCoSF, San Francisco Innovation Week Event, Opens Doors To City's Biggest Tech Companies (PHOTOS)


It's innovation month in San Francisco and everyone's got something to say about it, from Mayor Lee to the technorati to the San Francisco Bay Guardian.

So far, the month has included fireside chats, coding sessions and launches. But for anyone interested in startups, the real party starts Thursday at OpenCoSF.

This Thursday and Friday, tech companies and startups will open their doors for a citywide series of public salons to share what's worked, what hasn't and why crazy ideas might not be so crazy after all.

And judging from the roster, OpenCoSF isn't messing around. Check out a full list of participants on the event website and browse through a few highlights in the slideshow below:
