Why we’re betting on LA (and you should too)

When you tell your friends and family that you’re moving to Los Angeles, they rarely mention the business opportunity. Palm trees, Hollywood, sunshine, Mexican food and traffic all come to mind before any considerations of the city as a global technology and innovation leader.

Los Angeles is quickly changing that narrative. Founders and operators who previously built technology companies in San Francisco, New York and Boston are choosing LA. Powered by increases in venture capital, a pipeline of diverse engineering talent, and a legacy of expertise in specialized industries, LA is at the center of frontier categories like gaming/esports, transportation, AR/VR and aerospace. It is also the fastest growing startup market in the country.
