There is no place like Santa Cruz and we work hard to keep it that way. At the Economic Development Office, we are passionate about what we do. Whether you’re just starting up or are long-established, we love supporting all businesses. We are committed to providing the tools and resources you need to make your dream a reality. Caring deeply about your success, empathizing with your joys and complications, we strive to be your advocate. Our business is you.
Santa Cruz has created a market that’s distinctly different from those in the nearby Silicon Valley and San Francisco Bay area. The natural features and small-town appeal encourage a boutique market for entrepreneurs and business owners who seek a lifestyle that really has it all; and a community eager to support local businesses.
