The What?

The GrowTECH initiative stands as a strategic and outcomes-focused collaboration, spearheaded by industry leaders in technology and entrepreneurship, alongside the support of community organizations. 


Together, we navigate shared opportunities and challenges within the tech and startup industry in both the greater Chico area and the North State. Aligned with ChicoSTART’s iHUB2 designation, our efforts extend to the regional expansion of the GrowTECH initiative in the North State.


Embarking on your entrepreneurial career in Chico, CA, can be a strategic choice that aligns with personal and professional growth, offering a unique blend of opportunities, lifestyle, and community support. Companies like Klean Kanteen, Chico Bag, and Build Ferguson all got their start in Chico.


What is our culture? We believe we capture the entrepreneurial spirit and story of our GT community! Our members are passionate and driven, support each other in their ideas, and celebrate and elevate the entrepreneurial spirit of the GT community by telling the story of their successes.


GrowTECH creates a forum for quality connections, networking, info, and idea sharing through events, strategy meetings, and workshops.
