Founding Organizer of TechRaising, Strategist, Critical Thinker, and Change Agent, Andrew Mueller came on to Gamers on Gamer on April 30, 2012 to talk about the recent second annual event TechRaising Santa Cruz Spring 2012.
This year’s TechRaising began Friday, April 20, at 6:00 PM with a gathering to pitch ideas and ended Sunday, April 22, at 6:00 PM with the demonstration of prototypes built over the course of the weekend. It is a weekend startup blitz designed to take ideas for new web-based businesses and bringing them to reality. Most teams include a designer, developer and a business developer. Volunteer mentors help by roaming the event and injecting knowledge and sage advice wherever needed.
During the show, Andrew explained that he and co-founders Mathew Swinnerton and Margaret Rosas, began TechRaising in an effort to help create a friendly environment for tech startups in Santa Cruz. Their mission it to “provide the space and support for individuals to gather, collaborate, build, promote, and gain momentum for their ideas.” The collaborations created at this annual event have lead to several successful new application creations.
