Tech news site dot.LA is now live
dot.LA, a new news and events company chronicling Los Angeles’ tech and startup scene, has launched, reports Lindsey Ellefson of The Wrap.
Ellefson writes, “The site, led by L.A. Times veteran Joe Bel Bruno as editor-in-chief, has a reporting staff of seven with experience at the Wall Street Journal, the Associated Press and other outlets.
“‘I found that L.A. has all the ingredients necessary for a vibrant tech and startup ecosystem: angel investors, early- and late-stage VCs, private equity, unicorns, big exits, public companies, and great universities. In short, there was much more going on in L.A. tech than I expected,’ Rascoff said in his greeting to new readers, noting that he and co-founder Sam N. Adams launched the site with $4 million in seed money.
“Rascoff did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the business plan for the site, which does not appear to have any ads on its launch day.”
