Mayor Bill de Blasio Announces Tech Talent Pipeline to Kick off Internet Week
We’re excited to share that Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the creation of the NYC Tech Talent Pipeline during his keynote address at Internet Week New York this morning.
The NYC Tech Talent Pipeline will support the growth of the tech sector and train New Yorkers to be tech companies’ first choices for hiring. Building on an existing relationship with CUNY and the NYC Department of Education, the NYC Department of Small Business Services will lead this effort based on its long-standing relationships with employers, and deep investment in worker training.
The NYC Tech Talent Pipeline combines city, federal, and private dollars to reach a budget of approximately $10M, distributed across 3 years. It will be supported by several philanthropic partners, including inaugural funder J.P. Morgan Chase, The New York Community Trust, and the NYC Workforce Funders, who are committing to future funding.
