I’m writing to let you know about an exciting opportunity, available to Chattanooga-based nonprofits and educational institutions.
Last November, Mozilla announced the Mozilla Gigabit Community Fund. Following the larger Mozilla Ignite Apps Challenge Program, the Gigabit Community Fund is only made available to the cities of Chattanooga, TN and Kansas City, MO due to our easy access to gigabit-speed internet.
On February 6, 2014, Mozilla will host a Gigabit Community Kickoff Event at the 4th Floor of the Library (in partnership with the National Science Foundation, Department of Education, and US Ignite), making available $150,000 to area nonprofits to support development and experimentation of education and workforce development-focused uses of emerging technologies.
As an IT professional heavily involved with the nonprofit community in Chattanooga, I have agreed to participate in this kickoff event by facilitating some of the sessions and helping educators, nonprofits and technologists like yourself conceptualize ideas for projects (websites and internet applications) that could take advantage of high-speed internet for the good of the community. We atDevelop CENTS are also helping to promote the event.
If you are an educator, nonprofit organization, community activist, or a technologist, please consider joining us on Thursday, February 6, at 11:00am.
