Startempire Wire: The Startup Community Megaphone

Startempire Wire is inspired by the entrepreneurial and startup culture in the Inland Empire.   This podcast intends to be a megaphone for the Startup Culture in the Inland Empire first and help to possibly amplify with team efforts the voices and the deep rooted purposes of the many startups in the Inland Empire. 

When most people think of Startups & Startup culture they do not think of the Inland Empire but the Neighbors of the Inland Empire Like Los Angeles, San Diego and of course Silicon Valley.  Startempire Wire was started because we believe that the Inland Empire has something to specifically offer in the realm of Startups and we want to magnify that message.  We are intensely local but have national ambitions as well.  For this reason, the name is not “Inland Empire Startup Wire” but Startempire Wire .   


Our goal is to thoroughly cover the startups, startup community & Startup culture locally.  To Be a megaphone for our region but to also partner with other regions as we grow.   We are glad you are joining us on this journey and we are ready to put in all the necessary work.
