SG SoCal: From AgTech to Celebrity Hunting, Meet Los Angeles' Hottest Startups

It wasn't long ago that Dollar Shave Club turned a sensational YouTube video into a billion dollar exit to Unilever - and Los Angeles' tech scene has been dropping one blockbuster after another since. Though Elon's Master Plan Part Deux, as reported by Silvia, was the big news of August, just this weekend Snap Inc (formerly Snapchat) revealed its first foray into hardware, the Spectacles - and with a veiled "rest in peace" nod to Google Glass, setting sights on besting Silicon Valley at its own game. Show business isn't the only industry keen on spinoffs here.

Los Angeles Tech Isn’t Silicon Valley: It’s Entirely Its Own Beast

Home to Hollywood as well as Venice Beach, the Los Angeles tech scene was made to shine - and in the last few weeks, it has barely left the spotlight. While Dollar Shave Club turned a hilarious Youtube video into a $1 billion exit to Unilever, Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk unveiled his Master Plan Part Deux, simultaneously putting vehicle manufacturers, the ride-sharing industry, and utility companies all in his crosshairs.

3 Things I Learned From Gary Vaynerchuk

Two weeks ago I had the privilege of interviewing serial entrepreneur, angel investor, and 3 time NY Times best-selling author Gary Vaynerchuk in front of a sold out crowd in Santa Monica at Startup Grind LA. For those of you who don’t know, Gary is one of the most well-known entrepreneurs of our time. He began his career by growing his family’s wine business from $3 to $60 million, co-founded one of the hottest ad agencies in VaynerMedia which is now worth over $65 million and growing, angel invested in some of the world’s best companies (Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Tumblr, and many more,) and wrote 3 NY Times best-selling books. He is a true hustler and practioner of what he preaches. Gary is one of the only entrepreneurs with an actual fan base so I knew I had to really deliver for this interview to be special.
