SANTA CLARITA IS NOT FIT FOR THE FOURTH INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION.

SCROLL DOWN TO SEE WHY ↙

OUR CITY

WHERE THE HECK ARE WE?

The Santa Clarita Valley is about 30 miles north of Downtown Los Angeles.

In 2019, founder Carter Cote realized that strip malls were disappearing in his community. He also realized that its workforce consisted heavily of middle-wage jobs with predictable tasks.

 

Carter conducted a study on Santa Clarita's workforce and retail community, comparing the jobs most susceptible to automation and the jobs most prevalent in Santa Clarita’s workforce, while also comparing the sustainable emerging business models with community retailers. His findings were stunning: 38.57% of jobs in the Santa Clarita Valley have an average automation potential of 62.6%, and the majority of businesses in community strip malls failed to operate one of the six sustainable emerging business models.

SCV'S WORKFORCE IS OUTDATED.

With all of this in mind, our team wanted to dig deeper and to identify areas in which we could combat the outdated nature of our city. Our projects aim to provide solutions.
