Businesses and young people to tackle real world challenges under new Community Interest Company
Training and skills provider, Digital Innovators has formed Digital Innovators West Midlands Community Interest Company, to facilitate collaboration between young people and businesses in the West Midlands.
With support and funding from GBSLEP and Bruntwood SciTech, Digital Innovators West Midlands Community Interest Company will launch a pilot series of events designed to bring together young talent and local businesses to solve business challenges.
These events will include businesses across many different sectors – including construction, fintech, professional services, healthcare, engineering and more – and are an exciting next step in Digital Innovators’ ambition to help young people from disadvantaged backgrounds develop their skills and confidence to make their mark as they enter the world of employment.
By forming Digital Innovators West Midlands Community Interest Company, the organisation is able to build upon and develop new partnerships with businesses who are interested in expanding their corporate social responsibility policies to invest in skills and employment opportunities for young people in the West Midlands whilst benefiting from innovative business solutions.
This initiative is the first campaign to be launched by the newly-formed Digital Innovators West Midlands Community Interest Company, and builds on its sister company’s five year track record of working in partnership with schools and colleges to provide digital and workplace skills training to 16-25 year olds and bridge the gap between education and the workplace.
Founder and CEO of Digital Innovators, Mick Westman, said “for Digital Innovators, establishing Digital Innovators West Midlands Community Interest Company allows us to expand our current partnerships and identify new opportunities to work with companies and grant-funding organisations to benefit the growing number of young people in the region that have not yet had the right support to help them reach their full potential. We want to improve equal access to opportunities for this talented generation whilst generating tangible business solutions across multiple industries.”
Digital Innovators is keen to collaborate with businesses, schools or colleges who are interested in being part of upcoming challenge events. Organisations wanting to get involved should contact Digital Innovators on firstname.lastname@example.org.
