The Tech Equity Fund directs resources to local projects that remove barriers to entry into the tech industry and create opportunities for underrepresented constituents, including youth and small businesses.
The Miami Foundation, working in collaboration with a diverse panel of tech community advisors, will administer direct and challenge based grants to projects and initiatives advancing equity through tech. Contributions to this fund will be allocated toward Tech Equity Miami aligned projects and initiatives that focus on:
- Increasing Digital Access: Facilitating access to broadband connectivity and devices for underserved communities
- Strengthening the Pipeline: Increasing exposure to high-quality tech experiences for K-12 students
- Increasing Tech Pathways: Creating defined pathways into tech-based careers
- Fueling Digital Transformation: Accelerating small business growth by improving their ability to participate in, and benefit from, the digital economy.
