Santa Monica has quickly become the place to be for innovators and business-minded folk alike. And rightly so. The infrastructure is in place and there are plenty of venture capitalists in Los Angeles with the bandwidth to invest in budding startups.
The prosperous tech community that resides on the 3-mile stretch of land from Santa Monica to Venice known as Silicon Beach can attest to that. The area is rife with prosperous tech businesses and has room for growth.
Forbes contributor Lori Kozlowski recently highlighted the efforts of one Santa Monica-based creative on a mission to bring innovators together and help grow the Silicon Beach influence. It's called Cross Campus and it's a creative space and education center for entrepreneurs that recently opened its doors at 820 Broadway.
Cross Campus works on a membership basis, inviting companies or individuals into its fold to utilize not only the space, but access to workshops on a variety of disciplines, Kozlowski wrote. The entrepreneur campus also holds lectures from the likes of TEDx and the Founders Institute and will begin a new monthly interactive series on various topics. The first workshop will focus on the origins of the universe.
