Immigrants from across the globe and representing every conceivable industry have used Los Angeles as a launching pad to build companies that make an impact on the local economy and beyond.
Some, such as mitú’s Beatriz Acevedo and Orci Advertising’s Hector and Norma Orci, have capitalized on L.A.’s deep Latino roots, while others, such as Vault Pharma’s Michael Laznicka, specifically targeted the region due
