Daniel Fogerty (Launchcode):

Ola Ayeni (Claim Academy):

Elaine Queathem (Savvy Coders): Elaine has been involved with technology her entire life, but when working for a small software technology company in 2009, she became acutely aware of the shortage of qualified programming resources which were essential for a small company to grow and thrive. Now, several years later, she is in a position to help people develop those important and sought-after skills. That’s why she founded Savvy Coders.

Tony Bryan (CyberUp): Tony is a veteran, lover of St. Louis, and a self-proclaimed "nonprofit nerd." He has served the regional nonprofit ecosystem for over 10 years in varying roles and currently serves as the Executive Director of CyberUp. The organization is committed to closing the cybersecurity skills gap by training the workforce of today and inspiring the workforce of tomorrow. When he is not working, he enjoys spending time with his wife Addie and their four children. He obsesses over football way too much and helps other nonprofits meet their goals through volunteering and board service.

Each organizations identifies and trains individuals in new skills which include full-stack code, front-end web development, and cybersecurity.
