Make in LA finds, nurtures, and invests in promising hardware companies. We believe that much of the venture community undervalues rising undiscovered hardware founders, and we are the right team to fund them at this significant inflection point. Since 2015, we've seen a gap in SoCal’s startup hardware ecosystem. Resources were incredible, but fragmented and capital was scarce for seed stage hardware founders. We addressed that by raising a venture fund, building an innovation lab, recruiting a values-driven community, and connecting talented founders with the resources they need to impact the world.
