To support Austin’s thriving technology industry, city officials voted today to back the Austin Technology Education Labs partnership.
The initiative, known as The Labs, will feature a series of educational and others meetings and events by the Austin Technology Council and its members and the city.
The Labs will focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, innovation, entrepreneurs and other critical areas of the technology industry.
In addition to the city and the Austin Technology Council, San Francisco-based Engine Advocacy and the ATC Community Foundation will execute the programs.
“We are so fortunate to have such an abundance of technology innovation here in Austin,” Council Member and Emerging Technology Committee Chair Laura Morrison who co-sponsored the resolution, said in a news release.
“This partnership, and the united voice for tech growth that it represents, quite simply sets our market apart from any other market in the country,” ATC president Julie Huls said in a statement.
