A lot has happened in the tech scene since the last TechRaising weekend in 2014. Looker took off, Amazon moved in. Supply Shift, Paystand, Buoy, Ya doggie, One Wheel, and Inboard are thriving. Sellhound is launching, we have an accelerator. More and more companies are being funded.
This has all brought credibility to Santa Cruz as a place that Tech companies can start, grow and thrive. We have the expertise, people and culture to build great tech companies.
With this, a lot of new tech people have come to town and locals have re-engaged in the Santa Cruz tech scene.
TechRaising has always been about the community. We want to bring people together from all levels of experience to get to know each other in a fun and entrepreneurial environment. Businesses will get started, companies will meet talent and see how they work in a fast paced challenging environment. Investors will get a look at new ideas and teams.
Different from a typical hackathon or Startup Weekend, this will be a collaborative event where our goal is to get people from the community to know each other better, help each other refine their ideas, and move those ideas from the talking phase to the doing phase — and have something to show for it at the end of the weekend.
People have been asking for another TechRaising and we agree —it’s a great time to bring people together to have fun and raise some new tech in Santa Cruz.
