Former Zillow CEO Spencer Rascoff launches dot.LA, a news site for Southern California tech

Nearly a year after stepping down as CEO of Seattle-based Zillow Group, Spencer Rascoff has turned his focus to the tech and startup scene in his hometown of Los Angeles, leading the launch of a news and events company to cover it all: dot.LA.

Rascoff moved back to the city about four years ago, and he’s been impressed by the size, breadth, diversity and vibrancy of the tech scene. As the executive chairman and co-founder of the new media venture, he thinks the time is right for Southern California tech.

Dot.LA, which launches its news coverage Jan. 27, has attracted dozens of investors and just announced a $4 million seed funding round with participation from venture capital firms such as Comcast Ventures, Maveron, Anthos and Greycroft; companies including the Los Angeles Dodgers and Snap, Inc.; and executives and entrepreneurs including Stubhub President Sukhinder Singh Cassidy, Amazon’s Jeff Wilke, former Twitter CEO Dick Costolo, and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.
