HELLO & WELCOME TO ITBUFFALO!

Our Mission: to Produce 5,000 New Technology Professionals for the Buffalo, NY Area.

WHO ARE WE?

At our core, we’re a workforce development program led by some of the most prominent technology leaders in Buffalo, NY.

 

We're working to provide education, training, and resources to help people access and develop technology careers.

But we're much more than that.

We're community builders with a bright vision for the future of our city.

We believe that by growing the base of technology talent in the Buffalo, NY area, and by building a support ecosystem around our technology professionals, we’ll help our city become a more competitive business community, and a more attractive and economically vibrant place to work and live - creating opportunities for future generations.

You can view a video of our strategic plan below.

THE 3 PHASES OF OUR PROGRAM

RETAIN TECH TALENT

Currently, Buffalo area schools graduate more technology-trained students who leave Buffalo for employment, than tech students who stay and work here locally.

The more of these talent students we can retain in our community once they graduate, the wider the base of technology talent our area employers will have to draw from.

 

 

ATTRACT TECH TALENT

Importing talent from other regions of the country (and the globe), brings new ideas, new perspectives, and new enthusiasm to our community - and widens the local talent pool at higher skill levels..

Building a connected ecosystem and providing a window into it, can showcase all we have to offer. And by adding guides, we can further support our community's employers, as well as newcomers to our area.


 

FOSTER TECH TALENT

To further build our base of local technology talent, and to enhance the quality of existing local talent, our region needs to provide access to the education and resources necessary for people to learn new technology skills.

 

Not only does this grow the talent base for our area employers, but it moves people up the ladder of skill and compensation. Improving the lives of individuals and families.
