I launched Giant Media from my Brentwood apartment in November of 2009. We’ve come a long way since that time and have moved offices twice since then, but rather than relocate to San Francisco (or for that matter, New York), we’ve chosen to stay in the quickly emerging “Silicon Beach”. We operate out of a gorgeous office on Electric Avenue, just off of world famous Abbot Kinney in Venice, California. The space is creative and spacious — even more so because we feel connected to a great community and environment for a startup.

Just down the street, I have friends I can call on for ideas at companies, like Movieclips.com, Viddy, Google, and others. We host a “First Friday” party every month that attracts hundreds of people from the startup and advertising community. Another indicator of the growth of this community are the various incubators and accelerators popping up around town, which house, mentor and fund early stage startups. The entrepreneurial spirit can’t be ignored and the inspiration is totally infectious. This is all great for our stage as a company – because we’re growing fast and always on the look out for top talent.

Just as cool, we’re starting to see an increase in investment money pour into the area, so it’s a pretty safe bet that this growth is still going strong.  We feel lucky to have launched a company in what I think will eventually be the center of digital technology innovation in the United States.

    I have noticed that smart real estate agents almost everywhere are warming up to FSBO Marketing and advertising. They are knowing that it’s more than merely placing a sign in the front place. It’s really concerning building relationships with these dealers who at some time will become buyers. So, whenever you give your time and effort to serving these traders go it alone — the “Law associated with Reciprocity” kicks in. Interesting blog post.

All the same, thank you for this excellent point and while I can not really go along with this in totality, I regard your viewpoint.
