Initiated in 1995 by local business and industry executives, the South Coast Business & Technology Awards honor individuals and companies who have demonstrated extraordinary commitment to ensuring the economic vitality of Santa Barbara County’s South Coast.
Each year, scores of corporate sponsors participate in the county’s premier networking event that draws approximately 700 people to the Hilton Santa Barbara Beachfront Resort and gives them the opportunity to celebrate the best in our local economy.
Since 2001, the proceeds from the South Coast Business & Technology Awards have benefited the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara. The funds are granted to local students studying business and technology at Santa Barbara City College, UC Santa Barbara, Westmont College, CSU Channel Islands, Allan Hancock College, and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. To date, more than $2 million has been granted to almost 900 students.
