A note from our CEO

Tech Foundry’s commitment to an equitable future where diverse individuals’ potential and tech skills unlock opportunities has led to the creation of Tech Foundry’s Tech Hub. The Hub is a place where all people can learn, get technical support services and individual help to ensure that they can use technology to reach their goals and help our region to thrive.

With thanks to our incredible partners and funders, we look forward to this next step in connecting our community to technology skills, devices and careers. In doing so, we aim to contribute to a stronger, more vibrant Western MA, by helping people realize economic stability through equitable, accessible and inclusive opportunities.
