Sponsor. Build. Champion.

Be part of the magic at Santa Cruz’s premiere tech startup event.

Before the weekend is
over, many of them will
bring something new into the world

For one weekend, more than 100 entrepreneurs, developers, designers, marketers, and tech enthusiasts will gather in the big atrium and classroom at Cruzioworks in downtown Santa Cruz. They will pitch ideas, create teams, design projects, work like mad for 48 hours — and then show what they accomplished.

You are invited to join the fun as a sponsor — and get in on the buzz surrounding one of the coolest events in Santa Cruz.

 

Highlights from TechRaising events:

  • Amazing speakers including: tech-business icon Scott McNealy — co-founder and CEO of Sun Microsystems. And at monthly meet ups: Steve Blank — Stanford professor and father of the customer development process that launched the lean startup movement, and Adeo Ressi — serial entrepreneur and founder of the Founders Institute
