Tech Talent South is coming to Connecticut to provide residents with the skills needed to fill in-demand, high-tech jobs that employers need.
In the first quarter of 2019, Tech Talent South will call Upward Hartford its next community hub! This new campus launch is in partnership with Governor Malloy and The Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD).
“Companies in wide variety of industries from around the state are focused on growing their technology workforce,” Governor Malloy said. “While much work has been done to increase the number of computer science graduates in the state – we’re up 136 percent at our state universities since 2012 – we need to equip more candidates with tech basic skills so companies can put them to work now.”
“We are excited to join forces alongside the agencies and organizations in motion in the State of Connecticut, creating opportunities in the spaces between the supply and demand in the local technical workforce,” Tech Talent South Founder and CEO Betsy Hauser Idilbi said. “We look forward to building relationships with education partners who already play a critical role in opportunity creation and the students who are eager to launch into a tech-based career as we continue with our core mission of connecting local tech and entrepreneurial ecosystems.”
What does this mean for Tech Talent South? It means an even bigger family of people learning, growing, innovating, changing lives and changing the world. We are so excited to call Hartford home and move Upward with the whole community! Ready to get involved? Reach out!
