2017 Central Coast Innovation Awards
Central Coast Innovation Awards celebrates its 2nd anniversary in the current issue of Pacific Coast Business Times. We launched Central Coast Innovation Awards last year in an effort to capture the special aspects of the startup revolution that's sweeping the region, the state and, indeed, the nation. Our goal is to recognize the distinctive startup culture that's redefining Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties.
Central Coast Innovation Awards would not be possible without the support of our sponsors. Our Founding Sponsor is UCSB Office of Technology & Industry Alliances. Our Platinum Sponsor is Union Bank. Our Gold Sponsors are California Lutheran University, CNSi Incubator, Montecito Bank & Trust and Nixon Peabody. Our Silver Sponsors are Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Stradling and Wells Fargo. The section was produced by Special Reports Editor Chris Officer. The cover photo of John Bowers was shot by Nik Blaskovich and the cover was designed by Graphic Designer Cory Pironti.
Please join us on March 16 beginning at 4 p.m. as we present our Startup Village and Central Coast Innovation Awards.
