General Resources

Socrates Rosenfeld, CEO Jane Technologies, Inc.

SC Works has been nothing but supportive of Jane Technologies since Day 1. From hosting events to sharing resources -- SC Works has opened their network of local tech influencers, investors, executives -- and we feel so grateful to be a part of the growing tech community in Santa Cruz. SC Works symbolizes what Santa Cruz tech is all about: openness, innovation, and the ability to dream BIG. We look forward to growing our partnership with SC Works, and to be a part of the growing Santa Cruz tech community for years to come.

Anne Scholz, COO RealSeq Biosciences

We are especially excited about the funding from Santa Cruz Works  to support a summer intern at RealSeq Biosciences.  Internships are a great way to get local, younger students interested in the sciences and without the extra funding we would not have been able to initiate a summer intern program.
