The Santa Cruz Tech community has grown a lot since our last event and it feels time to come together once again to explore ideas and expand start building them. We’ve had great success in the past — let’s do it again!

Join other developers, designers, entrepreneurs and business people at TechRaising 2018 to build those ideas you’ve been talking about. This event is about collaboration, execution, accomplishment and showing what you’ve done.

Participants will gather on the evening of June 1, 2018, and have 90 seconds to pitch their idea for a product, service, or company to the group. After pitches have been completed, everyone will have a chance to dialog with each other and form teams to build the idea over the course of the weekend. The goal is to have something to demo or launch at the end of the weekend.

Teams should consist of at least one developer (ideally two or more), one designer, and one business development/marketing person, but can be as large as necessary.

Feel free to talk to others about your ideas beforehand, refine them, get buy in, and please come with the intention of embracing others.

This will be a learning event and a way to interact with, promote, and nourish the community of entrepreneurs in Santa Cruz. The cost to attend is nominal, just enough to cover basic expenses and make this enjoyable for all.

Mentors will interact with teams and share their experience and ideas. This is an opportunity to brainstorm with others who have done it before and iterate on your ideas and products.

Let’s join together for a weekend and create things that will demonstrate that we are a thriving entrepreneurial community that is not only talking but also doing.

  • Designers
  • UX experts
  • Business development professionals
