Our community is packed with tech expertise and enthusiasm for attacking big problems, but we risk brilliant people working in silos. The Enterprise Center is the organization that sits at every table to obtain the full picture of our region’s needs and capabilities, and helps move our community toward an advanced future.
With EPB’s fiber optic network as a scaffolding, our community continues to develop cutting-edge technologies, with both civic and business applications. The Enterprise Center believes that such advancements should serve the public good, and that people from all walks of life should have the opportunity to participate in the creation and application of advanced technology. We work to get technology into the hands of people of all ages and backgrounds, and we support an environment of innovation, where anyone can succeed.
