How would you like to say your office is on Silicon Beach? That could be your address if you’re a techie in Los Angeles. Silicon Beach has earned its reputation as a mecca for technology, with more than 500 tech companies and more start-ups revving their engines every day. This swath of tech excellence stretches from Los Angeles International Airport north to the Santa Monica Mountains and doesn't even include all of the industries across Los Angeles. Suffice to say, L.A. is the place to be in technology, especially with major companies anchored in the city like Google, and YouTube.
Los Angeles' tech scene is booming as those who are escaping high-priced areas such as the Bay Area find the City of Angels a location that welcomes technology-based ventures to warm, sunny beachside and city offices. L.A. saw a 31% increase in migration from the San Francisco area alone in 2020, which doesn’t account for other business-related entities moving in, especially with the rise in remote work opportunities.
As the new decade began with the buzz about technology-based businesses, the talk of the town in L.A. continues to sizzle, more than 7,000 investors have poured money into 4,768 startups, ranging from innovative newcomers creating revenue flow in all sectors of tech. Some of the new ventures that Los Angeles sees are in the aerospace and AI industries, with many looking towards commercial spaceflight. As the dream to go to space for anyone who can buy a ticket has already become a reality, shining stars in the largest commercial astrospace companies are leaving their corporate spots and introducing new businesses such as Relativity Space and Elementary Robotics.
