I’m pleased to announce that as part of Inc. Magazine’s 2015 Inc. 500 ranking of the USA’s fastest growing private companies, AudioMicro, Inc. (including our 4 brands – AdRev, DashGo, AudioMicro, & ImageCollect) was named as the USA’s 5th fastest growing media company (and #162 overall). This accolade is based on our actual revenue growth over the past 3 years, with revenue last year growing to $13.4 million. It’s the 3rd year in a row that we’ve made the Inc. 500 (we were #2 in media in both 2014 and 2013) and if the first part of this year is any indicator, we’re in a solid position to make the list for the 4th straight time next year.  A special thank you goes out to our customers, clients, partners, and most importantly to our amazing team for all of your hard work through the years.

Thank you to our amazing team, customers, and clients for making this happen. We couldn’t have done it with you. I realize the blog has basically turned into a trophy wall which is likely annoying for subscribers. Please accept my apologies. I simply don’t have any time or focus theses days to enable myself to create detailed topical blog posts here but hope to get back to doing so some day.

LA Startup Email Newsletters and Events

A reader recently asked me for advice on getting settled in LA and involved in early stage tech businesses.  He wanted a sort of “quick way” to get involved and network his way into the scene and find out the best opportunities, companies, entrepreneurs, and investors in the LA area.  I’ve prepared a list here for those who are ever seeking similar advice.

You’re going to have to get out there and do the networking yourself, but these resources are a good place to start.  Most of them can be subscribed to via email where you’ll get alerts about news and events worth exploring.  I tried to set the links to that you’ll be taken directly to the email sign up / calendar of events pages for convenience.

So without further adieu, if you’re new to LA and looking to get involved in early stage ventures / startups, here’s a list of good places to start your journey:

  1. Amplify.LA
  2. Coloft
  3. CrossCamp.us
  4. Dealmaker Media LA
  5. Founders Institute
  6. General Assembly LA
  7. LA Startup Digest
  8. LAUNCH Conference / Jason Calacanis
  9. Launchpad.LA
  10. LAVA (Los Angeles Venture Association)
  11. PandoMonthly LA Events
  12. Siemer & Associates Events
  13. SocalTECH
  14. Southern California Tech Central
  15. StartupsUncensored
  16. Technology Council of Southern California
  17. TechZulu

I know I’m missing quite a few, so please let me know in the comments here and I’ll add them.  Happy Holidays!
