SARTA is accelerating the growth and development of the technology sector in the Sacramento region. We are the nexus that links technology leaders, entrepreneurs, investors, service providers, community organizations, and educational institutions.
We are a not-for-profit 501(c)3 corporation founded in 2001, and focused on a nine-county region of Butte, El Dorado, Nevada, Placer, Sacramento, Solano, Sutter, Yolo and Yuba counties.
SARTA is making things happen. Join us -- join the movement.
SARTA’s mission is to accelerate the growth and development of technology companies and the technology sector in the Sacramento region.
SARTA's vision is to develop the Sacramento region into a nationally recognized center of technology and technological innovation, as evidenced by a significant number of technology companies growing, developing and prospering in the region.
What We Do
In support of its mission, and across all of its programs and services, SARTA's work has three main areas of emphasis:
First, we build community within and among the technology sector in the region. We connect technology entrepreneurs and executives to each other, as well as to the resources they need to be successful.
Second, we raise the profile of the technology sector in the region, among those who are not engaged with it. We highlight, emphasize, collect, and publish information about the technology sector overall, as well as the accomplishments and milestones of specific companies.
Third, we provide learning and educational opportunities to entrepreneurs and executives with regional technology companies. We support their efforts to learn best practices from subject-matter experts and technology leaders.
