Welcome to the future of full-service office space at gigabit speed, where almost everything is taken care of for you. Located in the heart of downtown Santa Cruz in the Cruzio building, convenience and accessibility are just the start of why our tenants love being here.

With over 1,400 attendees last year, we knew we had to throw another awesome party. We always love an excuse to celebrate, promote and support small business growth, entrepreneurs and telecommuters in our state-of-the-art downtown facility. You’ll be able to visit and talk with over 40 new businesses in one spot!The night will be a celebration for the entire Santa Cruz community. It’s also a chance for our coworkers to display their artwork as part of the First Friday Art Tour. Come meet the folks, see our space, enjoy yummy food from three food trucks, tasty drinks, free swag, local music and more.
Cruzio’s Industy — telecommunications — keeps changing and our valiant staff works hard to stay ahead of the curve. Every year, we adopt new technology and even invent new ways of doing business. 2012 was a busy year for us, culminating in a being named Business of the Year from the Santa Cruz Chamber of Commerce (a huge honor!)Here’s a look back at we’ve done this past year.
We work hard at Cruzioworks. Many small companies and individuals have their own goals but also help each other and find interesting ways to collaborate. We work all sorts of hours, use tremendous amounts of Internet and drink amazing amounts of caffeinated beverages.
And frequently, one of our coworking companies finishes a project. Elegant, useful, creative, marvelous: many products and projects have emerged from the Cruzioworks primordial soup.*
When you’ve met a deadline — finished a manuscript — put together an organization that’s ready to go — it’s a great feeling. A time for the whole community to celebrate.
So Cruzio invented the Launchies. That’s our answer to the Grammies, the Emmies, the Oscars. Every Cruzioworks coworker who launches a product, service or company just needs to let us know. They’ll be feted with champagne and treats, get publicity, and best of all receive the attractive “Launchie” award suitable for display. Continue reading →
Santa Cruz has always been known as a beach community, an oasis where Bay Area citizens can escape into the sunny bliss of rolling surf and beautiful redwoods. However, in recent months, Santa Cruz is making waves in another way, following Kansas City, Chattanooga and Lafayette in creating a hyper-connected “Gig City.”
But where other cities have relied on public funds or the efforts of large corporations, the Santa Cruz high-bandwidth network is expanding through partnerships between local ISP Cruzio and private building owners.
In 2010, Cruzio opened its own office and coworking facility, Cruzioworks, with a direct connection to Silicon Valley via 10 gigabits of fiber-optic Internet. Small businesses and technologists flocked to Cruzioworks. Soon after opening, the 12,000 square foot space was almost filled, to over 90% occupancy. Continue reading →
Wonderful party/showcase last week when hundreds of people came to celebrate local business at the Think Local First mixer at Cruzioworks in downtown Santa Cruz.
Buying locally puts a much higher percentage of your dollars back into your own community where it can be used to foster a safer, cleaner, better environment in which to live in and raise children.
By the way, Cruzio Internet is 100% local. Locally owned, all employees live and work in Santa Cruz County. We understand the benefit of buying from businesses in our own community and we do so whenever we can. Continue reading →
