StartOut Los Angeles

Today’s startup innovators come from about six hours south of Silicon Valley in Los Angeles. With about 200,000 small businesses, LA can also be considered an entrepreneurial epicenter – that’s nearly twice as many small businesses as can be found in any other region of the U.S.! As the entertainment capital of the world and home to a creative LGBTQ enclave, LA has a burgeoning startup scene attracting investors, incubators, and accelerators.

Heavily weighted towards Santa Monica – 35% of startups are headquartered in “Silicon Beach” – the city has produced some major successes. From Snapchat and Beats to Oculus Rift, Los Angeles became a prime location for the 2010 development of StartOut’s third national chapter.
