“The 82% Micro Business Summit was a great experience and we left with ideas that we implemented and contacts that have become sales.” — Doug Conrad, Owner, Capitola Wine Bar

The County, along with co-producers Andersen Media & Communications, SlingshotSV, and Santa Cruz County Small Business Development Center, wants to recognize the backbone of our local economy by holding an annual event that honors their spirit while giving them real-world tools to apply during day-to-day operations.
