Easy now, we’re not breaking out the gravity guns before our imminent run in with our fellow Buspreneurs from northern California. We were just skimming the headlines and couldn’t help but notice this one: Why Los Angeles Will Outpace Silicon Valley As The Tech Startup Capital.
It’s a common thread on the L.A. StartupBus – how and why is LA’s Tech scene different Silicon Valley’s (or New York, Boston or Chicago for that matter)?
LA has a wealth of talent, as evidenced by the sampling of hackers, hustlers and hipsters on the bus but we also have investors of all kinds (and room for more). It’s more than just abundant sunshine, plastic surgeons and red carpets. Visit any of the startups, incubators and accelerators, collaborative workspaces, and coworking spots around Silver Lake, Santa Monica, Pasadena and you’ll see why LA’s riding a wave of momentum into Texas this year.
(Thanks for the shout-out Tara!)
