Due to consolidation of the Northern California Small Business Development Center (SBDC), Tech Futures Group recently expanded our service coverage area to include all of Northern California, including the burgeoning tech and innovation hub of the Greater Sacramento region.
The Sacramento region is undergoing a renaissance as civic and business leaders embrace the role of technology and innovation in transforming the community from its historic reputation as a government town into an innovation hub. To connect with the Sacramento region, we reached out to StartupSac, a Sacramento non-profit with the mission to accelerate Sacramento’s startup and innovation ecosystem by informing, educating, empowering, and connecting its startup founders and innovators.
Referred to by some as the 411 of the Sacramento startup community, StartupSac has been recognized for their outstanding regional contribution in growing the local startup ecosystem by the Greater Sacramento Economic Council and received praise for its resources for the startup community.
On a recent visit to acquaint ourselves with the Sacramento tech and startup community, we met with StartupSac co-founders Jeff Bennett and Laura Good, as well as other key players in the Sacramento startup community.
“We’re excited about the opportunities this new bridge to Silicon Valley will bring for Sacramento startups,” said StartupSac president Jeff Bennett. “Since we announced this new opportunity on the StartupSac website we’ve seen some very positive response from the local startup community, and we’re looking forward to working with Tech Futures Group, not only to refer local startups but to tap into Tech Futures Group’s pool of mentors and advisors and hopefully bring them here to Sacramento for workshops and events.”
