Dear friends,
What a summer it has been so far! Starting with our launch in June, study results, and MAKE IT IN LA Week... and just last month we began releasing our weekly Forbes profiles and episodes of the The Art of Manufacturing podcast.

It has been fun shining a spotlight on the wonderful things going on in our community. The response has been so overwhelmingly positive, it's been hard to keep up! I look forward to more good things to come in the fall.

Enjoy our first newsletter!

The Art of Manufacturing

Our new weekly podcast launched last month! It's a behind-the-scenes look at how people who are making stuff are trying to "make it" in their industries. Subscribe on iTunes, and you'll never miss an episode. To join the conversation and get an exclusive look at new content, request an invite to the private Facebook group.


July 21-24, we hosted a series of special events with the mayor's office and our coalition partners to help kick off the MAKE IT IN LA movement. If you missed them, catch the recaps here.
