According to venture capitalist Nate Redmond of Rustic Canyon Partners, quoted in the article, “We’ve never seen a level of activity higher than it is today.” Several SAM clients, including Riot Games, are mentioned as companies that are benefitting from the growing tech market in Southern California. Also mentioned in the article is SAM client and venture capitalist Mark Suster of GRP Partners, who is actively involved in the Los Angeles venture capital market and believes that the Los Angeles area is “one of the most undiscovered tech hubs in the country.”
