IRVINE, CA, UNITED STATES, October 4, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Vincit launches an important community initiative called Coded In Orange County
Coded In Orange County highlights companies who develop their software in Orange County, California thereby fueling the local economy. The project is similar to what Vincit successfully launched in Finland where today there are over 150 companies registered.
The importance of Coded in OC is to grow the local economy by encouraging companies to invest in local talent, grow and retain the local workforce, pursue innovation, and shine a light on Orange County’s technology community.
The site has launched with several prominent companies in Orange County that met strict criteria of having their software produced in Orange County, California. Companies that register are vetted before receiving a Coded in OC insignia to place on their, website showing their commitment to growing the local economy and workforce.
The project has received enthusiastic support from influential Community Partners such as Greater Irvine Chamber and Irvine Valley College.
“The depth of leading-edge software development is an important component of Irvine’s innovation hub,” said Bryan Starr, President and CEO, Greater Irvine Chamber. “Orange County businesses bring a high level of value to the world of technology and to end users. Coded in OC is a step to recognizing this strength.”
“Workforce development to meet the need for qualified technology talent is at the heart of Coded in OC,” said Dr. Glenn R. Roquemore, President of Irvine Valley College. “IVC houses a strong complement of technology programs, faculty, and curriculum that, combined with partners like Coded in OC, will go a long way toward meeting workforce needs for 21st Century technology jobs in Orange County.”
