I love LA and I love the startup ecosystem. I actually think Los Angeles, and arguably New York, is far and away the best place to launch a product than San Francisco and the rest of the bay area. The reason is up in Northern California, it’s a huge community of early adopters and it’s fairly homogenous. In Los Angeles, if you launch a product or a services company and its tech in nature, you are getting a better litmus test. There are more diverse communities here. People give you a better feel if your product has legs.
After a summer that saw the 2012 Mucker Lab graduate and 2013 TechZulu Tech Crawl participant secure $7 million in Series B funding and a National Aviation Administration permit to fly, it appears that Surf Air is continuing to raise the bar. Surf Air’s goal is to make luxury flights relatively affordable for people who aren’t accustomed to flying private. The startup airline currently flies in California only as it strives to expand nationwide.
