Back in 2010, "Firm400" began as a collective group of young aspiring artists and entrepreneurs. Most of our active team members were involved in the music & entertainment industries. In following years we further expanded our relationships internationally. In doing so created a stronger foundation in Southern California region and it's Lifestyle & Culture. Our original format was created for an online magazine with web content that we produced. All of which would revolve around our network of musical talent and the relevant news of that time. Our "Firm" collaboratively grew as a resourceful network that intertwined in helping each other excel in their respective fields. The "400" was derived from inspiration we took from the successful list of the "Forbes 400". The "400" was a representation of our ambition and drive to become as successful as the richest in America. With our repertoire of strategic and collaborative marketing in the last decade, Firm400 has collaborated with brands/companies including Cerwin-Vega Mobile, Diamond Audio, The Loft Sound Studio, Hot Import Nights, and Musartwork to name a few. And that's what you see the brand as today: Firm400.
