News

Bitsbox_largeThe new EVO3 Foundation will provide tech education to the youth of Summit County and provide tech services to other non-profits in the area.

EVO3 Workspace, a unique coworking space in Frisco, Colorado dedicated to bringing tech to the mountains, is proud to announce its latest enterprise, EVO3 Foundation. The foundation is a newly formed non-profit organization that will focus on tech education for youth as well as fulfilling technology needs for other non-profits in Summit County.

“This is our way of giving back to the community we serve,” said founder, Aaron Landau. “The foundation is a truly authentic approach to creating lasting change in our community.”

EVO3 Foundation will design community initiatives based on three core themes – youth education, advancement of the tech industry and complimentary tech services.

Youth Education

The EVO3 Foundation will provide youth education through its 500 Students in 500 Days initiative. The 18-month program will teach children, ages 6 to 12, to code using curricula from Bitsbox. 200 students will undergo a five-week course on app development and another 300 will be given an hour of coding instruction.

Bitsbox.com is a website created by ex-Google employees to teach their own children to code. On its website, Bitsbox explains, “Learning to program is just like learning any other language. The earlier you start, the easier it is.”

“Teaching kids about technology at an early age does more than prepare them for a career,” said Landau. “Teaching kids to program gives them the skills needed to create the technologies of the future. They will be responsible for the evolution of this industry.”

Advancement of the Tech Industry

EVO3 Foundation will work closely with the Colorado Technology Association to support initiatives that promote the advancement of the technology industry and highlight the ground-breaking work being done by tech companies in Summit County.

To further connect like-minded individuals, The Colorado Technology Association created the Colorado Tech Tour, a technology road trip which showcases the states most talented tech advocates. The tour will be rolling through Frisco on August 2nd to feature EVO3 Workspace.

Technology Services

See a need, fill a need. The EVO3 Foundation will connect non-profits organizations in Summit County with skillful volunteers who can fulfill their technology needs from setting up a network to designing a website.

“Each non-profit in Summit County is contributing to making this a better place to live and work,” said Landau. “We should do what we can to help each other and tech is what EVO does best.”
