What’s Silicon Beach?

Marketplace Staff Jul 27, 2015

We’ve heard of Silicon Valley and its New York counterpart, Silicon Alley, but there’s a growing group of startups based out of Venice — a.k.a. Silicon Beach. We traveled down there to talk with a few CEOs about the Los Angeles–area tech scene, and we’ll be airing those conversations through the rest of the summer. Here’s a preview. 

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.

In the past year, we’ve seen record unemployment, stimulus bills, and reddit users influencing the stock market. Marketplace helps you understand it all, will fact-based, approachable, and unbiased reporting.
