Milwaukee Tool has partnered with Milky Way Tech Hub to support the advancement of the Milwaukee region as a technology and innovation hub.
The Milky Way Tech Hub, founded in 2017, aims to transform the city of Milwaukee into a tech hub that focuses on equity, representation and inclusion through community and corporate partnerships. The Tech Hub is owned by Jet Constellations, a Milwaukee-based software company that provides tech solutions in the medical, financial and socially responsible industries.
As a corporate member of the Milky Way Tech Hub, Milwaukee Tool is helping fuel STEAM initiatives in Milwaukee to strengthen Wisconsin’s southeastern workforce. The company is currently working with the Tech Hub on a four-week program with Milwaukee Academy of Science to teach middle school students computer science skills focused on hardware and embedded systems.
“At Milwaukee Tool we firmly believe that instilling computer science skills is critical as we build the workforce of the future, and by partnering with Milky Way Tech Hub we have a unique opportunity to introduce these skills to the City of Milwaukee’s youth,” says Brianne Stewart, manager of construction technology for Milwaukee Tool. “Milky Way’s vision to make this city a hub of tech talent is of special importance to our company, and we are excited to continue building this collaboration.”
“I am excited about our new partnership with Milwaukee Tool to help support their desire to expose young people to the possibilities of the field of technology through hands-on education,” says Nadiyah Johnson, CEO & founder of Jet Constellations. “We are grateful to welcome Milwaukee Tool as our newest corporate member. We consider this a great win as we continue our journey of unifying and strengthening our Milwaukee tech ecosystem.”
