The vision has always been clear, create an environment that embraces the undervalued community of passionate technology entrepreneurs. To make this vision a reality we needed to perform 3 missions all working in parallel of each other. We are very excited to have two operating missions in action. This section of our site will serve as the hub for Mission 3, The Community.
Mission 1: The Accelerator
Amplify has been operating an accelerator program since December 2011. Our goal for this mission was to add to the growing capital needs for Los Angeles entrepreneurs. These talented people were leaving our community because of a disconnect between the people who had money and themselves. This will always be a problem but with our program we now work hard to make capital needs in Los Angeles non existent. Find out more here.
Mission 2: The Campus
We recently renovated the historic building at 1600 Main Street in Venice CA, 90291 designed by famous architect Steven Ehrlich. The 10,000 square foot property, where part of the Venice roller coaster once stood, had a simple goal, bring everyone who shared the same drive and passion under one roof and lets see what happens. Our facility is now home to dozens of startups and eager entrepreneurs. Find out more here.
Mission 3: The Community
The final mission, embrace the community. In the past we've tested ideas on how we can support this community with events, resources (two of which you will find below), social media, parties, etc… We still have no specific program for the community, however, I do promise this is something we will focus a great deal of effort on. We will continue to test an array of experiments so we can better understand the needs of the community and how we can best help.
We can't begin to explain how excited we are for technology companies in Los Angeles. We are honored you let us contribute.
