Softec has been the leading voice of the technology industry on the Central Coast since its formation in 1996. The story of Softec starts with a collection of innovative business leaders in 1996 seeking to connect the dots within the budding technology industry. They knew that the local businesses needed to connect to each other and build a bridge to educational and government resources. Even in those very early days the agenda of Softec was connecting resources, ideas, and people in the tech trade.

Softec’s primary mission is to connect the tech community and we do this through our events and communications and many of those are free thanks to our sponsors.

Softec could not do the good in the community if we did not have the great support from our sponsors. They truly make it possible to do what we do and we would like to thank all of them. If you like what we do in the community and believe in the value we deliver please consider becoming a sponsor and make a difference in our local community. Please visit our sponsor section to see all the businesses and individuals that believe in and sponsor our activities.
