About Tech901

Tech901 is a new non-profit organization with a charter to train current or potential Memphians for a variety of information technology jobs and to work with employees to increase the Memphis technology job base. Our goal is to facilitate the area’s growth to 10,000 area technology workers by 2025.

Tech901 seeks to address the IT industry’s talent shortage, cost pressures, and diversity deficit with Memphis as the solution. This is accomplished through a series of programs that increase the supply of trained tech workers in Memphis in order to both assist the needs of our local companies and also to attract high-profile employers to our city.

Tech901 envisions a growing Memphis-area economy leveraging information technology job growth. We will serve a diverse range of Memphians through assessment tools, job training, and computer science education. Further, Tech901 will invest to grow and recruit IT employers to Memphis.
