Participants will gather on a Friday evening and have 90 seconds to pitch their idea for a product, service or company to the group. After pitches everyone will break out, discuss their ideas and form teams to build the idea. The goal is to have something to demo or launch at the end of the weekend.
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 — lets do it again!
If you have an idea for a startup or be part of a startup team, this is the event for you.
Teams should consist of at least one developer, 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.
Cross team collaboration is promoted and facilitated. This will be a learning event and a way to interact with, promote, and nourish the community of entrepreneurs in Santa Cruz.
Mentors will interact with teams, discuss key issues that all startups encounter — legal, design, PR and promotion, getting early adopters and customers, fundraising team building, and business model — 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.
You come and build and we provide from awesome local restaurants and vendors — the whole weekend long. Come and build we’ll make sure you’re well fed and thirst quenched.
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.
