Santa Cruz New Tech June 2023

June 7, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Checkerspot, Earth.Island, Stakabl, Swell Cycle Surfboards, The Floow, X Academy




No way! Brace yourselves for a lineup of presenters that’ll rock your world harder than a Led Zeppelin reunion tour!

Presenting Companies

First up, we have Checkerspot. These folks are empowering product designers to stick it to old-school commodity oils and leap towards a post-petroleum future, armed with high-performance materials that would make a Marvel superhero green with envy.

Then, there’s Earth.Island, who’ve cooked up a game so evolutionary it’s practically grown legs and crawled out of the primordial soup. It’s a fun-filled, global warming crash course that you really have to see to believe!

Stakabl, the geniuses who are literally raising the roof with their ceiling-based robotic storage system, are next. They keep track of your knick-knacks, doo-dads, and whatnot, and deliver them right when you need them. No more lost keys or missing socks, folks!

Then we have Swell Cycle Surfboards, who’ve made 3D printed surfboards a reality. And where else but in our beloved Santa Cruz? Surfs up, techies!

We also have The Floow. These guys are taking mobility and giving it a PhD in safety and smarts. They’re combining data science, social science, and cutting-edge tech to ensure your ride is as smooth as a Colbert punchline.

X Academy is a local high school team that’s making a splash in the tech world. They’re headed to the Worlds MATE with their incredible underwater robot. Take that, Aquaman!

And finally, there’s Corey. This company is so stealthy, we can’t even reveal their name without fear of a ninja ambush. Let’s just say, they’re more hush-hush than a librarian at a silent retreat.

Hold onto your hats, folks. This lineup is more exciting than a caffeine-infused Big Dipper rollercoaster ride!
