Even though the weather in Los Angeles is warm most of the year, the city still manages to stay cool. We’re talking about the hometown of Hollywood; the birthplace of the big screen! The city thrives in the blaze of lights given off by its stars—and Owler’s 2016 HOT In Los Angeles Awards have given it a reason to shine a little brighter.
This year, we have selected 33 L.A.-based companies from the list of over 26,000 companies on Owler that we feel truly exemplify what it means to be a HOT commodity. Award winners have achieved a peak level of visibility on Owler in terms of followers, blog posts, and insights—in other words, they’re the ones who have been burning the brightest. Winners will receive a digital award badge to display on their website to crank things up a few more degrees. (Click here to learn how to make the most of that badge on your site.)
