Divshot Sets Up Shop In Los Angeles
What would convince you to drop everything, get on a plane, and move your startup to Los Angeles? In the case of Divshot, a developer of user interface development tools for web apps, it was a chance to join Los Angeles accelerator Launchpad LA. According to Silicon Prairie News, the founders of DivShot, Michael Bligh and Jake Johnson, jumped at the chance to become part of the Los Angeles technology community after winning first place at the Crowdstart LA pitch competition in July. Divshot develops software which provides a drag-and-drop interface to create web apps, which can then export HTML and CSS code for use by software developers. In the Silicon Prairie article, Johnson cited the quantity of accelerators, startups and venture capital as reasons for making the move.
