From SaaS to gaming, virtual reality to drones, and Hollywood to healthcare, Los Angeles’ technology industry is as diverse as the people who call it home. It’s this diversity – in innovation and in thinking – that truly defines LA’s booming tech space, which saw an almost 75 percent increase in venture capital investment last year from the year prior, according to the National Venture Capital Association. To celebrate LA’s unique technology ecosystem, Cornerstone OnDemand (NASDAQ: CSOD) is hosting the fourth annual LA Tech Summit.
