Santa Cruz Tech Beat


Deals for Santa Cruz TechRaising Members

Santa Cruz TechRaising organizers have procured some great opportunities for the Santa Cruz Tech community.

The LAUNCH Festival will be in San Francisco February 24 – 26, 2014. 50 free tickets are available for Santa Cruz TechRaisers to be part of the festival and watch the next Dropbox, Yammer, or Mint launch.  It’s a great opportunity to learn about building a successful startup.

Go to and input the code “TechRaising” for a free Builder Pass. They also have a scholarship program. If you or someone you know who might be eligible they can apply here.

If you know a stealth company that is looking to launch in a massive way they can apply to launch at the 2014 festival here:

LAUNCH Festival is also throwing a Hackathon February 21-23.  More information will be coming soon.

But wait! There’s more!

Foundersuite has built a toolkit for entrepreneurs to jumpstart your startup and tracking in the right direction. It includes Idea Validation (instant feedback on an idea), Investor CRM (manage your fundraising), and Progress Tracker (track milestones and update investors).   Two new apps– Media Stalker (run your own PR) and Competitive Matrix (track competitors)– just launched in Beta.

Foundersuite also contains 69 templates for doing “nuts and bolts” work like dividing up equity, building a cap table, recruiting advisors and building a hiring plan.

Thanks to Santa Cruz TechRaising, you have a choice of two special deals on these tools: 3 months of free access or 30% off the subscription price for a year.  To activate this offer, simply enter code “TechRaisingFree” (for 3 months free) or “TechRaisingDiscount” (for a 30% discount) at registration.  No credit card needed.  These codes expire January 5, 2014.
