Today marks the first day of LA Startup Week, a five day celebration of the Los Angeles entrepreneurial community.
Quite a daunting event thinking of throwing a Startup Week in the second largest city in the US! LA Startup Week is in their first year and are hosting over 30 events to celebrate their community. They have speakers from TechStars, IBM, SendGrid, SoftLayer, GA and Keen.io (among a ton of others).
The biggest number? 876 Startups. That is amazing.
LA as a startup community is in such an interesting space. You can almost feel the chip on their shoulder being so talented and together (but so close to the Valley). In the last three years they seemed to really rally around new accelerators, coworking spaces and a few big startup wins. They have a ton of events and different parts of the entrepreneurship community coming together to celebrate who they are as a community. Interested in attending?
