There’s been a lot of attention given this week to a new map being generated by Represent.LA, trying to map out the Los Angeles technology ecosystem. They’ve done a good job, but (given their sources of information) wanted to point out that it doesn’t capture all of the activity here, and that our technology industry is much more extensive than their current sample might suggest.
We’d like to humbly point at our own interactive map of Southern California’s tech industry (generated from our extensive database of technology companies, venture capitalists, service providers, etc. in the area), which we’ve actually provided for many years. Click through to the image below to see the static version, or you can link to the live map. We’ve been collecting the locations and information on local companies in a big database for more than a dozen years. We’re hoping to help bolster Represent.LA’s map in some way with our data. (btw — keeping all that data up to date and tracking companies is all that we do, and it’s a lot of work!)
