Hi there and greetings from Issue 03!
We are back and excited to bring you more compelling stories of new ideas, tales of trail blazing and industry-disrupting successes from companies throughout the US and across the globe.
We come to you in the face of adversity, at a point in time where our beloved Santa Barbara community is in the midst of rebuilding after experiencing heartbreaking natural disasters. If things were “business as usual” this letter would be easy to write. Instead, we too have sought inspiration and motivation from the very people we profile to continue delivering awe-inspiring stories to our loyal readers.
We are fortunately surrounded by supportive neighbors in an energetic, coworking environment who make it easier to regain momentum. Our team cannot express the gratitude we feel toward our local community and community of entrepreneurs at large for the continued support and encouragement through this time. Our hope is to transfer some of this energy and encouragement to you, the reader, and to give you a glimpse into several fascinating innovations and the opportunities that our new friends have seized!
We hope these stories are as enjoyable to you as they are inspiring and we can’t wait to hear what you think!
We would like to dedicate this Issue to the amazing First Responders who cam to our rescue and continue to work diligently to restore normalcy to our uprooted lives.
