Represent.LA Looks To Map LA Startups
A new, grassroots effort by Alex Benzer, Tara Tiger Brown and Sean Bonner, Represent.LA, is looking to map out the Los Angeles startup community, by plotting out the list of startups, incubators, accelerators, and others in the community. Brown says that the site is a way to "promote the LA tech scene and strengthen the community bonds that span across a wide distance and many freeways." The map is similar to a map of the Los Angeles technology ecosystem provided by this publication, although Represent.LA is looking to engage the community in developing its own list of startup companies.
