Our Mission

Together we grow, support, and connect the thriving tech and entrepreneurial hub in Chico and the North State.

Through collaborative efforts, we aim not only to facilitate the expansion of innovative enterprises, but also to provide a steadfast support system for entrepreneurs and visionaries. Our overarching goal is to create an environment where the exchange of ideas, mentorship, and strategic networking converge to elevate the entire Chico tech ecosystem. Together, we are architects of sustainable success, cultivating a dynamic hub that propels the region into a flourishing era of technological and entrepreneurial advancement.”

Empowering Inclusive Innovation: GrowTECH is dedicated to cultivating an inclusive ecosystem where technology and entrepreneurship thrive, recognizing and celebrating the richness of diversity. Our mission is to empower individuals from all backgrounds, fostering an environment that values equality, respect, and collaboration. Through accessible resources, mentorship programs, and strategic partnerships, GrowTECH is committed to breaking down barriers and creating opportunities for underrepresented voices in the tech landscape. Together, we aspire to build a tech community that embraces and uplifts every individual, ensuring that innovation knows no boundaries.”

We’re located in the heart of  the North State, a mere 2 ½ hours north of the San Francisco Bay Area, where tech giants like Google, Apple, and Facebook attract the most talented developers to Silicon Valley. Yet we believe the opportunities available in places like Silicon Valley fall short of offering its workforce the balanced life it deserves. Chico is a special place with an exceptional alternative for those looking for more startup runway, a higher quality of life, and who want to contribute to our local entrepreneurial and tech ecosystem. There is a strong entrepreneurial spirit with space to start and room to grow! More about Chico.


In Chico, we believe we deserve to enjoy both the satisfaction of worthy work in our careers and the fulfillment of leisurely pursuits outside of work.

In Chico, we believe the best life is a balanced life, where you can work smarter not harder, and move quicker – where the technology you build delights the customers who use it, and makes an impact in the community and beyond.

In Chico, we believe the best life is one where you can be part of a strong community brimming with rich culture and opportunities to serve, and where you have time to spend with family and enjoy the outdoors. This is precisely what Chico has to offer.
