As a fellow entrepreneur, angel investor, and community builder, I’m incredibly excited to share this inaugural newsletter with you highlighting the Central Coast’s thriving ecosystem. As I’ve gotten to know the community over the last two years, I’ve experienced the robust support system in place to foster entrepreneurs & companies.

Fresh Coast Tech is a result of local feedback that a monthly aggregation of news, jobs, events, and more would be helpful to support and grow the Santa Barbara & Central Coast tech community.

Please send us your news links, jobs, events, and more and we will share in this newsletter and on social media. We look forward to working with you to further bolster the local ecosystem. Just reply to this email to send us something to share. And please forward this with others who would benefit from reading.


Friends, I've been connected with Neal for a few years and have been impressed with his community building skills. Since 2019, we began collaborating to bring the Santa Barbara tech ecosystem together through events, which have resulted in local investments and dozens of new startup connections. This newsletter and the upcoming media properties will focus on promoting the successes and progress happening in the tech ecosystem of Santa Barbara and the Central Coast. Thanks for sharing this amongst your networks.
