For over a decade, we have been collaborating closely with economic development organizations and business incubation programs to provide innovative training programs in technology, entrepreneurship and workforce skills to over 1,000 youth and adults. And we don’t want to stop there. Led by a strong and diverse management team motivated by a common desire to positively impact the world, TECODE (Technology, Entrepreneurship and Community Development) works tirelessly to fulfill our mission:
To foster partnerships that promote technology, entrepreneurship and workforce skills development to strengthen the capacity of under-served communities.
Our approach is threefold – Train, Support and Connect. First, we research the latest distance learning technologies and student-centric pedagogical models to design training programs that are truly engaging and transforming. Second, we strive to work hand-in-hand with each individual to enhance their technological capacity, entrepreneurial spirit and workforce skills. Third, we are constantly building a network of partners that open the doors of opportunity for our program participants.
Strong communities built by inspired individuals with technical know-how, an entrepreneurial mindset and relevant workforce skills.
