startupSTARK members serve on the advisory board for the Canton Innovation District.
We have worked for several years, even prior to inception, to assess, cultivate and create partnerships and avenues that allow Canton to thrive today and in the future. We aim to use this district to restore the innovative spark that built the Timkens, Aultmans, and Hoovers of this county and we hope to instill that spark into the future workforce so that they may find a home in Stark County for a long time to come.
Education: Junior Achievement
In Fall 2018, startupSTARK worked with Junior Achievement of Stark County to create a role for Chief Technology Officer on their JA Company Program teams.
This endeavor allowed us to interact with students to show them ways to apply technology to their business and gain interest in the growing number of high paying technology jobs.
Education: Stark State College
We also collaborate with silver donors, Stark State College to promote continuing education opportunities and connect with students through professional outreach.
This allows us to show local students that there are promising career opportunities in Stark County and ensure they have the skills they need to be successful.
startupSTARK is proud to partner with local community organizations to encourage the development of future leaders and entrepreneurs.
