We welcome reporting and editorials on a range of topics regarding startups and technology in Los Angeles, and beyond. We prize writing that informs and illuminates the people, startups, and technologies in our region in a clear and original way.

If you are new to LAStarutps.com and pitching for the first time, please be sure you’re familiar with our site and the topics we cover. We value stories that haven’t been covered elsewhere, and we are especially interested in features that illuminate a bigger story in the news.

When pitching us, we’ll want to know: Why this story now? What does it tell us about this place? What issue does it raise and why does it matter? Do you have a central character? How is this story connected to the culture, environment, or industry that anchor Los Angeles?

If you have an idea for a story you’d like us to write, please send them to [email protected]
