Is it just me or did this week just zip by?! In case this is your first time here, I would just like to welcome you to the fun world of Buddytruk. If you’re a returning reader, “How you doin’?” OK. This week was packed with some fun items to share. From our favorite apps that can boost your productivity to fun updates in the world of Silicon Beach!
1. Santa Monica Mayor, Kevin McKeown is excited about Buddytruk!
When we received our Tech Startup Award from the Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce, we had the privilege of speaking with Santa Monica Mayor, Kevin McKeown. He was super stoked about Buddytruk and had some kind words to share. We can’t help but loop this clip endlessly, lol. Watch the entire video of the mayor sharing his thoughts on YouTube below.
2. The Business Insider reports on the Silicon Beach movement.
Madeline Stone of the Business Insider wrote an incredible piece on the Silicon Beach movement. I highly recommend you check it out: See why more startups than ever are setting up shop on the beach in Los Angeles. One of the questions we’re often asked is “Why Los Angeles and not San Fransisco?” Well, when you’re able to start your morning off like this anytime you want it’s hard to give that up. Warm weather, incredible people, and just an all around fun vibe. From a tech startup standpoint, we’re on the cusp of something very special with being a part of the growing tech movement in L.A.
