Crain’s LA spotlights EOY Greater Los Angeles finalists and their Venice experience

Two EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Greater Los Angeles finalist companies, inMarket and StackCommerce, sat down with Crain’s to share their unique experiences establishing headquarters in the eclectic and diverse LA neighborhood known as “Silicon Beach.” In 2011, Venice was known more for skateboards than startups and Snapchat. But, that year, Google leased 100,000 square feet of space in Venice to relocate from Santa Monica. Dollar Shave Club would soon begin shipping razors from a Venice garage.

 
“Venice brought us The Doors in the ’60s, and in the early 1900s Venice was like Disneyland. It’s always been a place for new things, entrepreneurs who are pushing forward, rulebreakers rather than rule followers,” said Todd Dipaola, CEO of inMarket. “That’s always attracted me to Venice.”

TaskUs is moving to the Santa Monica Airport

TaskUs, a leader in digital business process outsourcing, is moving into new offices in the Santa Monica Airport in October of this year. The 6,193-square-foot space, dubbed “TaskForce One” and which previously housed the restaurant Typhoon, has been redesigned by global design firm Unispace to reflect both the setting of the airport and TaskUs’ global presence.

“We love this location and we’re excited to be part of its revitalization,” said CEO Bryce Maddock in a statement. “The space itself is rich in local history and our team frequented Typhoon, so there’s a sentimental value to us personally. It reminds us of how far we’ve come, from TaskUs’ humble two-person beginning to the more than 7,000 team members we now have worldwide.”
