LAStartups.com is the pre-eminent media property focused on what is happening in the Southern California tech scene.

A digital lifestyle publication that started in April 2018 to cover the culture of startups and technology companies in Los Angeles. It is the go-to site for people who want to keep up with what matters in Los Angeles’ tech and startup space from those who know the city best … people who live and work in LA.

Updated daily, LAStartups.com covers culture, startups, tech, food, fashion, local history, news, and the people who shape it. Highbrow, lowbrow, and everything in between: if it’s compelling we’re covering it.

LAStartups.com is founded by the folks at Schmoozd, an offline social networking mixer with over 20,000+ Los Angeles subscribers since 2009. Schmoozd has connected LA’s most influential makers and shakers through impactful offline mixers. We’ve decoded the startup life and infiltrated its culture. We’ve also, observed and analyzed its methods and habits. From producing panels (here), mixers (herehere, …), launch party (here), dinners, meetups (herehere), demo days (herehere), job fairs (here), StartupBash (here), to hackathons (here) – yup, we have done it all. Heck, we’ve even partied alongside many of you. From endless coffee meetings at Starbucks to midnight snacks on the rooftop of apartment buildings somewhere in Santa Monica. It’s been an amazing journey – a journey that will live on and evolve.
