Fostering economic opportunity and job creation in partnership with communities.
Promoting skills and employability
Rapid advances in technology are creating new opportunities, but for many, they remain out of reach. TechSpark partners locally to ensure everyone can benefit from the digital economy.
Promoting digital skills and employability
Technology is reshaping how people work, yet many do not have the digital skills needed to succeed in the changing workforce. TechSpark is helping to close the skills gap and prepare employers to hire and support employees in new ways.
Increasing access to broadband
Nearly 25 million Americans, 19 million of which live in rural or remote communities, lack access to broadband and the educational and economic opportunities it provides. TechSpark is connecting communities to broadband through the Airband Initiative and partnerships with local providers.
Helping local organizations thrive
Advances in technology like cloud computing and AI can help transform organizations, but those without the resources to adopt them may be left behind. TechSpark helps nonprofits, startups, and companies leverage the power of technology to grow, innovate, and compete.
