Sponsored by Media Temple, United Airlines, Loud Interactive, Glen Grant and Hogan Lovells, the Techweek100 LA 2016 event awarded institutions in three categories — Ambassadors, Innovators, and Cultivators — with honorees being selected based on their contributions to the local tech ecosystem.
Innovators, both startups and established organizations, are chosen based on their track record in pushing the envelope of what’s possible in tech innovation. This year’s exceptional innovations included Oculus, Hyperloop, and Iris.TV.
This year’s Cultivators, chosen for their support of the local tech ecosystem, which enables business formation and economic vitality, include Goldhirsh Foundation, StartUp DTLA, and Greycroft Partners.
