About MSP TechHire

In response to the rapid growth in tech jobs in the Minneapolis Saint Paul region, the City of Minneapolis along with three high-quality accelerated learning programs: PRIME Digital Academy, Creating IT Futures – IT Ready, and The Software Guild came together with 60 regional employers with the purpose of training and placing diverse workers into tech careers. The innovative work of this collaborative continued to gain momentum and in March of 2015 received national recognition when the President of the United States named the Minneapolis area one of the first TechHire regions in the nation. The initiative continues to grow with more than 369 employers engaged to date offering internships and employment opportunities for TechHire students and graduates. Follow MSP TechHire on social media using #MSPTechHire and #TechHire.
