California has historically been the breeding ground for early-stage tech companies. And while San Diego specifically, has a budding startup community, it’s focused mostly on marine or biotech and the number of “unicorns” still pales in comparison to that of Los Angeles and San Francisco. LogicBoost Labs was founded in part to help change that ratio. There’s no question that talent and resources exist, but unfortunately, the networks that facilitate growth are still nascent. We’re proud to be part of events like San Diego startup week which are helping to address this gap.
