[Update 9/24] Added TenOneTen Ventures to the list, so now it’s at 16.

Whether you call in Silicon Beach, the LA startup community, or the Los Angeles tech scene, it’s pretty much one and the same. What fuels it? Money. Here are a list of notable local Venture Capital firms, links to find out more about them, where they’re headquartered, and some notable investments they’ve made.

*This list does not cover 100% of VCs in LA. Notable VCs and Investments are decided by the author based on factors including size of investment, recent activity, or notability in LA.

Come by Coloft anytime to hang out with me and work on resources like this :) I’m also currently working on breaking down which industries and stage they invest in so keep an eye out (or reach out to help! – yohei@coloft.com).
